Vinography appeared in the current issue (October) of Food & Wine Magazine this week. Writer Mickey Butts highlighted his list of the best wine blogs on the web, and graciously included Vinography. I don't have much to say about his list (other than to note that Joe Dressner's and Jamie Goode's web sites, both of which I read regularly, are technically not blogs). Butts has chosen several good examples of what are dozens or even scores of frequently updated blogs run by dedicated bloggers and wine drinkers. No list like this can ever be "right," and I'd like to suggest that anyone who was curious enough to visit here because of the article definitely both check out the other blogs listed in the magazine and also take a look at the nearly 150 other wine blogs that I have listed on the left hand side of the page.
Deciding which blogs or blogs to read is not about going to an authoritative source like the New York Times, it's about finding someone whose voice, sensibility, and palate resonate with you, and who writes stuff you want to read. There are a lot of passionate individuals out there on the web, each of whom is making their own contribution to a growing body of wine notes, critiques, news, and ramblings.
