My piece in @LCI_Magazine & upcoming events where I’ll be speaking

cucina italiana wineWhen the editors of La Cucina Italiana contacted me last year and asked me to write for the magazine, I was thrilled: it’s Italy’s “National Geographic” of gastronomy and it’s also where I got my start as a wine writer way back in 1998 when I worked as the wine editor for the Manhattan office that launched not long after I moved to New York City.

It’s incredible to remember that when I began to work in commercial publishing, email was still new and I had a fax machine (remember those?) in my cubicle that spewed out press releases.

The current issue (November 2013) includes a piece I wrote on Natural wine in Italy today.

In other news…

I’ve got a number of fun tastings coming up. Here they are…

Friday, November 1: Paolo Cantele and I will be presenting his family’s wines at Sotto in Los Angeles, California.

Saturday, November 2: Paolo and I will present the wines at Jaynes Gastropub in San Diego, California.

Tuesday, November 5: I’ve been asked to speak at sommelier Michael Garofola’s “second annual Orange Wine Dinner” to be held at Genoa in Portland, Oregon.

If you happen to be in any or all of those cities on those dates, I’d love to taste with you!
