What We've Been Reading - December 5

3 great wine blogs


First up, don’t be confused by the name -- we’re still all about wine and not talking beer here. “Beery” is the last name of this blogging family, who honor the Roman god of wine with their take on “tasting, enjoying, discovering and just drinking wine."

Roger and Donna Beery are big supporters of small, family and artisanal wineries. The site includes a round-up of wine discounts, and the pair often work with wineries to secure the best deal on their favorites for readers -- and don’t take any commission.

Their writing is personable and accessible, with reviews short but snappy and spot-on. The archive includes posts on the couple’s travels through wine country, meetings with winemakers, and musings on their decades-long “love affair” with wine.

Serious About Wine
It's time to get serious -- and that's not a bad thing when it comes to Mike Carter's blog about wine packaging, design and marketing issues. South Africa-based Carter knows his stuff, having been involved in product development for wine businesses for more than a decade. However, that doesn't mean this is just for wine professionals -- enthusiasts of all levels, and lovers of good design, will appreciate his newsy, informative posts under categories including wine branding, innovation, strategy and trends.

Benito's Wine Reviews
Ben Carter started his blog way back in 2005, writing under the pseudonym of "Benito" until locals sussed him out and he "discovered that writing it a lot more fun when you're out in the open." And his easy-going, try-anything approach to wine is reflected in detailed reviews, including food pairings and peppered with personal observations. Recent reviews have included 2009 Argento Malbec, a Cameron Hughes TastingRoom.com set, and AGWA de Bolivia Coca Leaf Liqueur.

  • A further three blogs and, once again, The Sediment Blog (http://www.sedimentblog.com) fails to make it on to the reading list. Perhaps we're just not serious enough?
