One of the most amazing things about the recent Wine Bloggers Conference (WBC14) was meeting other bloggers. Some of my favourite people were the team behind The Vineyard Trail. I loved getting to know them and learning about their fabulous and fun wine company. I was beyond flattered that they were interested in interviewing me about my journey to becoming a wine blogger.
Their post and video is now up and I hope you’ll check it out. Not because it’s me (I’m convinced I look dorky), but because I love their site and you should take a look too. I also appreciated the opportunity to once again say thank you to the incredible people who welcomed me into the world of wine. My life would truly be very different had they not taken this wine novice into their lives and I am eternally grateful.

And while I’m on the subject, I thought this would be a good opportunity to mention just a very small sampling of the talented bloggers I got to know at WBC14. If you have the chance, please take a moment to visit their blogs and see what they’ve got to say about wine in their part of the world. Since this only scratches the surface of great blogs I discovered, I’ll try and plan a second post soon!
The Academic Wino – Becca’s blog is all about the science and history of wine and is often the source of some fascinating facts. She’s also fabulously nice and I was thrilled to get to know her better at this year’s conference.
A Glass After Work – Want ideas about what to sip after a hard day at the office? Alleigh is a great resource! While some of her suggestions aren’t easily available in Canada, there are some that are and the blog is a great read either way.
Cuvée Corner – When I decided to come to California, Bill was kind enough to spend an hour of his time telling me all the wineries I should visit and helping me plan my trip. Reading his blog, which is full of wine stories and reviews from around the world, it’s not surprising that he’s such a fabulous source of information. He was also a very-deserving nominee at this year’s Wine Blog Awards!
The Virginia Grape – Planning to visit Virginia wine country? Brian’s blog is a must-read for planning your trip. I love the personal touch to his winery reviews.
Like I said, just a small selection – I’ll be sure to add more soon. And please feel free to include your own favourites in the comment section.
