Please check out Sophia McDonald’s excellent write-up of the Slow Wine Guide project for Oregon Wine Press.
“For me, Slow Wine is opening up the conversation about how winegrowers and winemakers can help mitigate climate change,” said Barbara Gross of Cooper Mountain Vineyards in an interview with the writer. “We certainly have literal skin the game. The more conversations we have, the more people are educated about these nuances in the way we grow and produce wines.”
Sophia really gets it and her reporting is spot on.
The Slow Wine Guide to the Wines of Oregon is now in its second year and the reception in the state couldn’t have been warmer.
Thank you, Sophia!
In other news…
I’m about to head off to NYC where I’ll be tasting some (very) old Brunello di Montalcino and Barolo. And then it’s off to Italy for a short trip to taste more old wine.
When I think of all the stuff I’m missing in our girls’ lives this week (first music lessons of the school year, first gymnastics, first karate class, and first Girls Scouts meeting), my heart just sinks.
But hey, it’s a living!
Please wish me luck and wish me speed. And please stay tuned for my posts and tasting notes. Thanks for being here.
