A week or two ago, my boss at my day job at the PR agency bestowed the name “Washington Wine Wench” on me. I laughed with her and quickly decided it was one of my favorite nicknames of the many given to me over the years. Thanks Laura!
Before I decided to embrace it, though, I had a chat on Twitter with my friend and colleague Catie, who is well known in wine circles as the Wild Walla Walla Wine Woman. Click on that link, and you’ll see that Catie sells Walla Walla wine and gourmet gifts at her website of the same name. She also has a blog called Through the Walla Walla Grapevine, which was one of the first Washington wine blogs that I read. I recommend you check out both of her sites.
So I asked Catie if Washington Wine Wench was too close to Wild Walla Walla Wine Woman or if she would give me her stamp of approval. Her response: “I say that we need more W’s and I would be honored for you to join me.”
So I did! I now own the URL for washingtonwinewench.com. Right now, the URL points to Write for Wine, but look for announcements about my plans in the weeks ahead.
