The Saga of a Wine Blogger

A couple of weeks ago I was flattered to be told that I had been selected as one of the 50 best bloggers over 50 in September’s issue of Saga Magazine! In fact I am the only wine blogger on this prestigious list.

This exciting news spurs me on to share more of what I get up to in the world of wine which of course encompasses food, travel and photography as well.

I have been away for the last couple of weeks in two special wine regions and will be writing about my experiences as soon as I’ve collected my thoughts, checked my notes and sorted out all my photos.

To whet your appetite here is a little taste of where I’ve been and what I’ve seen…

Wink and I spent another week in the Jura continuing the research for her forthcoming book Jura Wine. We visited 22 vignerons and enjoyed good sunny weather – as did, of course, everyone else, anxious about the harvest due to start in three or four weeks time.

Then I was off to Sicily for the West Sicily Wine Bloggers’ Tour. Last year we visited the vineyards of Mount Etna so I was keen to see what was happening on the other side of the island.

And, of course, winemakers and #winelovers!

So I have lots to write about – watch this space!
