My 3000th Posting: Wine…Onward, Upward – James Melendez

My 3,000th post couldn’t be about a specific bottle otherwise it might be thought of as that wine as a particular highlight or extra special wine and all others not.  So I just highlight wine writing… my wine writing.

I am still in love with wine and I am amazed how I am still dazzled and how I look so forward to a specific wine or varietal.  That loving wine is that there is nothing to get tired of—after all–we are drinking amazing quality wines.  We are the recipients of the best methods, quality and techniques.  Few wine legends 50 years plus would not necessarily recognise the wines we have today. While there are some trends that are not necessarily exciting–I do seek the original and most honest ways of wine making.  I do look for great interpretations, artistic style, and reviving past techniques or styles that are important to be part of the story of wine.

We also have more access to wines from all wine producing lands that have not always been available or more precisely modernity allows more access through so many transport channels and lanes throughout the world.

Wine is a great social pizza–the many people who make it and the many people who enjoy it are something that I am delighted to enjoy daily.

Off to taste and write more–onward, upward!

About James Melendez

I love wine and have had the privilege of working in the wine trade as a senior national wine marketing manager for a wine, food and home goods retailer in 30+ US States. I executed into making wine experiential and made 'wines of the world' programme work in a highly regulated framework for a successful business proposition. My "wine" site also incorporates those categories intimately involved with wine such as food, travel and lifestyle. This site incorporates my many dimensions of interest. I love to review and also talk about many aspects of wine. I have been privileged to visit many wine countries and find them enthralling no matter how many times I visit. I love all aspects of wine: viticulture, history, winemaking, brand development, wine regions and many more aspects. This is a living tradition that needs documentation, education, reporting and reviewing. Do I have favourite varieties and styles? I love so many varieties and often it is situational and yet there are time honoured wines that I anticipate and I am passionate about. I like all colours of wine and all styles. I have had a mad passionate affair with sparkling wines and they are always top of mind. Wine nourishes our soul and is the key to connecting with other people at our dinner table.
