Wine School in the Media (Everywhere but the New York Times)

new york times

After compiling this list, I was surprised at the outcome: we have been featured by an impressive number of  publications.   I guess it makes sense:  we have been around for over a decade, and everyone loves to read about booze.

All of the articles are about how awesome we are. I wish! In reality, most of the time we are just helping a journalist get the real story. It may surprise you, but we do serious news.   We have been interviewed on articles about corruption in the wine trade, questionable practices of a state wine regulatory agency, and misdeeds of a  multinational corporation. We  do the fun stuff, too: articles on mulled wine, best wine with junk food, and many other stories that are the stock-in-trade of the booze world.

For your reading pleasure, we have included links to our digital archives below. However, our database is incomplete, so we can’t link to every story. We are adding more news stories everyday, so please come back and check them out!  Oh, and we are still waiting for the New York Times to write an article about us. Eric Asimov, where are you?
