Where's Vinography?

Hello faithful readers. Vinography is in New Zealand at the moment. I'm writing you this little update as the sun sets over the jagged peaks above lake Wakatipu and the little town of Queenstown. As a result of distractions like this (and the day we spent fly fishing today) Vinography coverage may be a bit erratic this week. Had a couple glasses of Sauvignon Blanc last night with some seafood overlooking the lake, and tomorrow we're spending the day tooling around the Central Otago wine region, so I hope to have some good wine reviews for you.

I'm also continuing to monitor the Menu For Hope Campaign which is entering it's second week. If you haven't donated yet, you still have time.

More soon!

Good travel, deer Alder and from a deep and friendly "jealousy", I highly recommed you to taste and write about the most important number of wines you can! Doing so, all your readers will receive a great benefit too from your travel!
All the best,
Joan

Can't think of a nicer way to spend your Christmas.

We almost missed the deadline to get our donation in. Please put us on your list of regulars for next year.

Happy Holidays!

I still haven't found Waldo. How can you expect me to find Vinography?
