Wine Store that doesn’t Blog about Wine Reviews…yet

Am I the only one not getting on board about writing wine reviews?  In my business, I write just about everything else but WINE.  What’s wrong with this picture?   I love wine and I love to sell wine.  However, there is a style of writing a wine review that I have not quite expanded my vocabulary to contribute writing a blog.  My notes from an industry wine tasting reads with redundancy and a lack of creative descriptors. This is from my notes..

This Thursday, September 15, we are sampling Kosher wines.  Something I want to write about since it’s different.  If you have and opportunity on Thursday evening from 5-8pm, come down and help me write my first wine blog.
