My 3000th Posting: Wine…Onward, Upward – James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy

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 have two blogs on this descriptor page--I use to be able to make separate. My fragrance blog is to express my thoughts on fragrance. A passion in addition to wine. I think it is a stellar component to the senses and that which I am in love with. I hope you like both blogs. My "wine" blog also incorporates those categories intimately involved - wine, food, travel and lifestyle. We all need food and water to survive but we need wine to nourish our soul. My favourite varietals are Pinot Noir, Nebbiolo, Grenache, Syrah-Shiraz.. for my red wines. And I often circle back to these varieties and sometimes they are my home varieties. The journey of wine is an historical footnote also marked by viti-viniculture and artistry that makes this beverage a living one. I have worked professionally in the wine trade and have loved all aspects; marketing, history, science and art of wine. © 2014 James Meléndez / James the Wine Guy— All Rights Reserved – for my original Content, logo, brand name, rating, rating graphic and award and designs of James the Wine Guy.
