Local Philadelphian Tapped as Daily Beast Contributor
July 23, 2009, Philadelphia, PA. The Daily Beast has contracted Philly’s own Keith Wallace to write about wine. The Daily Beast is a website published by Tina Brown, the former editor of The New Yorker and Vanity Fair. The site is one of the most popular news sites on the web, with a monthly readership of over 1.5 million people.
“The chance to write a column for The Daily Beast is an incredible honor,” says Keith. “Especially since Tina killed a short story of mine when she was the editor of The New Yorker.” Keith has written for Wine & Spirits Quarterly, Dining Out Magazine, and Philadelphia Style. He is best known as the founder of The Wine School of Philadelphia and the creator of the Philly Uncorked show.
His first column for The Daily Beast is titled “The Great Cabernet Rip-Off”. In the piece, Keith takes to task the wineries who are over-inflating the prices of their Cabernet Sauvignon wines.
