Now that the official press release has crossed the wire, I can finally formally announce that I've signed on with Appellation America as its regional correspondent/editor for my three local AVAs: Long Island, North Fork of Long Island and The Hamptons, Long Island.
I'm excited about the opportunity to join an impressive roster of correspondent/editors and I look forward to helping them get their existing content up to date as well as providing my own content. You'll notice that some of the pages are a bit sparse right now. That's going to change greatly in coming weeks.
For those of you not familiar with Appellation America's goals, it an online wine portal covering all wine regions in North America (including Canada). Its mission is to work with the industry in each region to identify and develop distinct AVA identities, and then to build consciousness in the broader wine consuming culture. With a unique focus on the AVAs, the site offers dependable, trustworthy descriptions of regional qualities, independent of ratings or spin.
