Busy day getting in touch with area wineries

I spent the majority of my day researching wines and spirits as well as getting in touch with area wineries. I briefly explained to them my new assignment and its over all objective as well as giving them a breakdown of my taste.

I then asked them to suggest three of their bottles which they thought would best suit someone new to wines and spirits, as well as my taste.

There are three wineries nearby. I don't plan on going to any wine tastings just yet. Before all is said and done I will do that, but for right now it's more of a learning experience and I don't want anyone's opinion to affect my reviews.

There are a few local stores as well I want to visit... it will be great for getting to know the owners and taking photos for my articles.

People are already sending me suggestion to try and I'm writing them all down. Decided to take it another step with matching the suggested bottle with the right crackers and cheese. I think I'm really going to like this assignment as I'm even diving into the health benefits of wines and spirits.

Your enthusiasm for this assignment comes through clearly in your post.

It was rather fun for work. There's always something thrilling about a new assignment. The idea kind of just gets tossed at me and I'm given room to go any direction I want with it.

No doubt you will do a splendid job with your wine tasting.

Welcome aboard. I like the idea about reading articles about various wines and spirits. Can't wait to read further articles.

You remind me of the writer who writes mostly about wines in Wikinut.

Never been on Wikinut, interesting name for a site though.

It has stopped paying recently. I just quit there.

I also stay in touch with my local wineries to write about them and photograph them. I love walking through the vineyards, camera in hand.
