Drink Local! Local Wine Week Kicks Off

My contribution to Local Wine Week is the following vlog where we discuss wines from Colorado, Illinois and Arizona. The week of October 6 marks the beginning of, a portal dedicated to connecting readers with writers who concentrate on what's going on in their local and regional backyards.

Kudos to Dave McIntyre from the Washington Post and Jeff Siegel of the Wine Curmudgeon for putting this initiative together.
