I’m still wading neck-deep in the book writing waters, but wanted to throw a quick update your way to let you know that I still haven’t forsaken (not totally, anyway) those regions that were kind enough to host me on recent media tours.

I’ve got two travel pieces recently published on the Napa Valley Wine Academy website. The first contains my impressions of some of the most underappreciated white wine gems in Austria: The Best Riesling that You’re Not Drinking (a Ride Along the Danube). Seriously, folks, these things are goooooood.

The second recaps (rambles?) some of my latest ramblings through Sicily, in which I postulate whether it’s high time for us to revisit what we think that we know regarding some of that island’s white wine grapes: Sicily’s Unsung Grapes: Grillo and Zibibbo.

Finally, I want to offer up a huge shout-out to the entire NVWA team, who just took home the WSET Educator of the Year Award. It’s a huge validation for the hard work that those fine folks put into their WSET program, and it’s heartwarming for me, in that I enjoy working with folks who happen to be so successful while managing to be such nice people.
