I was determined to make 2016 the year I branched out from wine, and started learning about other delicious beverages that are equally as complex and interesting: sake, beer, mezcal, Scotch, coffee, and so on. So, I dove right in with a primer on sake, for Vine Pair.
The piece was really fun to work on, because sake is fascinating. It’s a basic intro to sake geared toward people who know nothing about it but want to explore its nuances. Read it here.
Additionally, I wrote for Vogue.com about the “ten things all women need to know about wine.” It’s basically a run-down of some building blocks of wine knowledge that will make anyone feel more confident about ordering and drinking bottles. Find it here.
Now . . . I’m off to New Mexico to relax and unplug for a week. No wine! OK, maybe I’ll go say hello to the Gruet winery . . .
