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.
