Radio Ga-Ga (Talkin’ Premiere Napa on WineBizRadio)

Vinted on March 4, 2010 binned in wine industry events

Last week, I had the pleasure of being the guest on WineBizRadio, the great Sonoma-based wine business radio program with which most of you savvy readers will already be familiar.

I always enjoy riffing with show hosts Kaz and Randy, and I had a fantastic time discussing the recent Wine Writers Symposium (Facebook fan page), Premiere Napa Valley, and “the-wine-life-in-general” (by which I mean wine writing and, more specifically, the inability to make a decent living wage while writing about wine).  Except for that “my voice always sounds more nasally and higher pitched when I hear it on the radio” thing.

Anyway, I thought it would be a fun way to wrap up the coverage on the Wine Writers Symposium and the craziness of PNV (although I’m sure it’s not actually getting wrapped up totally… I’ve got tons I could talk about from those events…).

As an added bonus, in this episode of WBR Kaz-The-Wise explains how any wine blogger can quickly make money, provided they’re not too concerned about ethics. :-)

    What a delightful article to wake up to! You know of course that the feeling is mutual and now we can all bask in the echo-chamber-like glow of our self-actualization! Next time you're in the neighborhood, we MUST hang out!

    Anyhow, the content treadmill keeps moving, and this week we talked with Eric LeVine of CellarTracker fame. If there's one thing that we love more than talking with our favorite wine bloggers, it's meeting the best and brightest of the wine industry technologists!

    Hope you've recovered from all the snow shoveling, time to get back to work!

      Nice – looking forward to hearing that interview, and Eric's plans for total world domination!
