Where I’ve been, what I’ve been drinking

By Dave Buchanan

In most cases, the world slows down during the mid-winter months of January and February.

While activity in the vineyards is at the year's nadir, wineries already are ramping up coming the year.

That's also true for many writers, retailers and importers, all looking for the next Yellow Tail or whatver brand will take the wine world by storm.

If you've been this blog for any length of time, you'll have noticed there are occasionally long periods of time when few entries are posted.

These past few months have been one of those periods, but that's because most of my writing is being done on my OTHER blog here.

And as you'll see, I have been a but busy myself during the dark season.

The Wordpress site is easier to use (adding photos, linking to other sites, it's cleaner looking, etc, etc) so I tend to put most of my "national" topics there.

It's also where my writing is available to my fellow wine bloggers, winemakers, marketing folks and without needing the newspaper subscription.

I still cover the Colorado wine industry on this site, but there is more to wine than Colorado, even though there is much to explore within this state.

And with your forbearance,I'll continue to do so, from topics such as the personable Guy Drew of McElmo Canyon deciding to grow hybrids varieties to the June madness of the Food & Wine Magazine Classic in Aspen.

So I hope you enjoy both sites and don't forget to check in to see where I've been an what I've been drinking.

That's all the time I have this morning.

See you around the vineyards.
