Last week for event listings

I made a very difficult decision this week to stop my Thursday listings of wine events in Washington state. Tomorrow will be my last one. While I’ve enjoyed sharing the information in my blog, I’m now getting more press releases than I can handle. It’s become about people marketing their events to me, not about a two-way conversation.

Blogging is about relationships, about conversations. Press releases and mass mailouts do not involve either one. I will continue to promote Washington state wine by talking about my favorites;about industry news, people and discussions; and about tastings or events that I attend. I encourage everyone to join in the conversation.

I’d love to hear from more of you. What are your favorite wines? What makes you decide which wine events to attend? What do you think about screw-cap closures versus corks?What are you most proud about in the Washington wine industry? How do you think British Columbia and Oregon stack up against Washington wine? There are so many things to talk about — let’s do it!
