Hey! In a stunning display of poor judgment, Sacre Bleu Wines has published an interview with me. Here’s what they have to say as a matter of introduction, which is all quite flattering (and I hope I can live up to it!):
The word Dude in our culture is held in high esteem. It’s typically reserved for the special and elite among us. Think Jeff Spicoli, Jeffrey Lebowski, Lao Tzu, Bill and Ted, Julia Child and Joe Roberts..aka 1WineDude. Dude is one of the most entertaining and interesting words in any language, it means so many different things. In fact, it can mean everything. People can even converse saying nothing else but Dude. Dude, where’s my wine?
Joe Roberts, for many in the wine blogging world, is simply 1WineDude. He writes with comedic flair and intimacy. He reviews wines and wine trends, then makes us feel as though we know exactly what he means. His posts come with genuine wit and we don’t come away from his writing feeling adorned with polite, formal bullshit. Jeff Lefevere remarked that reading Roberts was like reading someone “doing a raucous stand-up comedy routine while sprinting on a treadmill.”
So while the 1WineDude takes writing about wine seriously, he is able to stand back and look at wine for what it is. Tastes good, sometimes great and leaves a nice buzz in its wake.
We asked the 1WineDude or “Duder, His Dudeness, Or El Duderino, if, you know, you’re not into the whole brevity thing…” to talk with us about his work, his passion.
