Larry SchafferWelcome! This blog is for all things wine related, explained in a no-nonsense, non-verbose way, by a consumer-turned-winemaker who still thinks like a consumer. And still is a consumer. (-:

I love wine, but I love talking about it more than anything else. There is simply too much misinformation out there on the topic, and I enjoy taking subjects or questions you have and exploring them in a little greater depth. I also enjoy the give-and-take of ‘discussions’, and therefore I look at these blog posts as ‘starters’ of discussions’ between you and me. The end goal? To understand each other better – and hopefully learn something along the way.

As I start the blog, I want to reach out and ask you for the types of things you’d either like to know more about, or discuss more, as it pertains to wine. It could be a ‘fancy word’ that is used in winemaking or wine-reviewing ‘vernacular’ that you may be unfamiliar with. It could be a specific wine variety or wine region you’d like to explore more or understand more.

I truly want this to be an ‘interactive journey’, and look forward to the highs and lows and challenges of not only moderating the journey, but hopefully guiding it in a meaningful way as well.
