    Just discovered your blog when I saw your Twitter follow.

    You now have a new reader!

    Question for you–I’m a tech entrepreneur, web and wine blogger and one of my projects, theLocalSip is while still a neonate, showing some early signs of staying power as a platform for the NY wine community.

    Rebuilding it now, broadening it and gathering input from the blogger community.

    Love to get yours as well. arnold@thelocalsip.com

    I noticed you haven’t listed Chilean wine as one you’ve tried. Here’s a video about why wine from Chile is so special, it might interest you:

    Also, Chile is beautiful, if you ever get a chance to travel there and visit their vineyards.

  10. Hi Lauren,
    I’m reaching out on behalf of New York magazine, where I am Copy Manager in the creative services department. I work on our integrated marketing programs and am currently working on an initiative with the Atlantic City Alliance, where each season we highlight popular activities (dining and drinking, shopping, entertainment, etc.) to help reposition the destination’s image and raise awareness about the area from a New Yorker’s perspective. We are focusing on wine in New York mag’s upcoming Fall Fashion issue (on newsstands August 11-24), discussing trends and tips and food pairings and what’s new, and I wanted to reach out to see if you might be interested in being featured as our tastemaker. I’d love to discuss more details with you if you’d like to e-mail me.

  11. Hello Lauren – Do you accept wine samples and do you have specific submission guidelines? Thank you!

  12. Hi Lauren,

    My name is Andreas. I am the founder of the website Oenophorum. It is kind of a social network for wine enthusiasts. You can easily save pictures and tasting notes of your wines and contact other users through several ways.
    The website went online with a german version this summer and I just launched an english version, too.
    Since you are one of the premier bloggers in the wine space I thought you might be interested in this.
    If you have time I’d love for you to check it out.

    Thanks a lot!
    Andreas Doktor
