About this blog
This blog started as an extension to the columns about beer wine and cider I used to contribute to The Irish Examiner up until October 20, 2012. I’ve quit that column, and there’s a post over here explaining some of the details. I am now (October 22) setting about deleting all references to my previous post as wine columnist – forgive me if stray one remains over the next day or so but I will have eradicated them all by time Leslie Williams begins columns on Saturday October 27! I trust you will join me in checking out his highlights from the world of wine in his weekly column in the paper.
Meanwhile back here, do expect occasional posts about wine and beer – and it’s likely that other topics will begin to appear too.
As an extension of this ‘about’ section, I had a comprehensive post about my interpretation of a proper sceptical journalistic approach when engaging with drinks businesses over here. You may find it of interest for the record. While I’ve added big tags pointing out I’m no longer a wine columnist, I will return to re-edit it properly soon. ♦
