Celebrating wine in 2022
As my second year of slinging wine words rolls around, I just want to say thanks to all of you who read Through the Grapevine.
To those of you who have reached out to me with comments and questions, I love hearing from you. My intent is to bring knowledge, inspiration and a touch of humor to your wine experiences. I’ve edited the annual wine calendar this year for more focus on locally produced wines. Wine is for sharing — may you all find beauty-filled ways to share wine in 2022.
