Getting All Juiced For 2012

Vinted on January 4, 2012 binned in going pro, wine appreciation, wine industry events

I’m very happy to tell you that I’ll be providing the weekly wine Quiz in The Juice newsletter, a customizable update on wine events distributed by the venerable

The first month’s quizzes will focus on trivia about Champagne, in the hopes that it will help lighten the serious hangover that the stuff gave you during your libation-filled New Year’s Eve celebrations.

I’ve long admired LWE founder & CEO Eric Orange (and not just because he’s a local PA guy!), and was a subscriber to The Juice back when was just a twinkle in my Riedel stemware. So I’m excited to be helping him out, and I’m very much looking forward to all the flaming I will get from The Juice readers telling me that my Quiz answers are actually all wrong interacting with The Juice faithful!

If you’re not a subscriber to The Juice, then you’re missing out – it’s one of the best ways to zero-in on wine events happening in your area, or wherever your travels might be taking you during any given week; and the website and newsletter have become invaluable resources on wine happenings for hundreds of thousands of wine geeks across the world. So, go sign up already!

I’ve not finalized the Quiz themes going forward, so if you’ve got great ideas for topics/themes on which to focus for future editions of The Juice, please shout ‘em out!

    Thanks Joe. I've watched your blog grow from that twinkle into the powerhouse it is today. I was even nervous for you when you quit your job to focus on your passion. I'm glad that you continue to thrive and look forward to a strong 2012.

      Thanks, Eric! I'm nervous enough for both of us, trust me! :)

    Austria! Santorini! Chile!
    Nope, I'm not biased.

    Also a big supporter of the Champagne idea!

    Congrats, Joe!

      CC – Noted (and those are good ideas anyway! :).

    This suggestion just came in via Facebook:

    "How about quizzes related to grapes that have multiple names around the globe. e.g. Cannonau is another name for which grape variety? Cabernet, Merlot, Grenache, Syrah"

    LOVE that idea!

  • cono_sur

    Great idea! I love quizzes!

    • 1WineDude

      Thanks, cono_sur – not my idea, though, clearly… ;)

  • Gale Clare

    I LOVE those quizzes on The Juice! Always read them…..good luck with your new gig!

    • 1WineDude

      Thanks, Gale – if you have suggestions for future Quizzes, I'm all ears. I'm considering running them here as well after they appear in The Juice…
