Corkheads makes must-read blogs list

Hey folks! I’m back from a week in Cabo San Lucas, where I drank enough Nebbiolo to transport me to Italy on that beach chair and then followed it up with lots of palate-cleansing Tecates to bring me back.

Great news I have to share. Corkheads has made Mutineer Magazine’s list of must-read blogs. If you haven’t read the L.A.-based beverage magazine, you simply must. It’s full of fabulous pieces about all things beer, wine, tea, coffee and food related. And editor Alan Kropf has his finger on the pulse of the wine blogosphere.

Here’s a cut and paste from the issue. I’m in excellent company with Alder Yarrow of San Francisco-based Vinography, Brix Chicks of Oakland, and Virginia’s Wanna Be Wino. If you want to see the whole issue, you have to subscribe to the mag with the link above. Otherwise, I’ve cut and pasted my portion below. Thanks for helping to make Corkheads a fun place to discuss wine!
