Welcome to my new project: Weather and Vines. I hope to share my love for weather and affection for wine with you through this newsletter. Together, we’ll explore how weather events impact important wine regions throughout the world. Sometimes we’ll look at recent events and other times we’ll explore the weather behind whichever bottle of wine I just picked up at the store. Either way, it should be a fun learning experience for everyone! If you’d like to know more, I encourage you to read the about page here.
The first few posts will include an overview of the wild fire season on the West Coast, the potential impacts of the current La Niña on your favorite wine regions, and a journey through the history of a Zinfandel that I intend to drink tonight.
Most posts will come out on Thursday afternoons. Welcome!
