Vinography began on January 15th, 2004 as a personal project for founder and editor Alder Yarrow. The site is now a respected source for non-mainstream wine writing, and one of the most influential wine blogs on the Internet. Featuring wine and sake reviews, restaurant reviews, editorials, book reviews, wine news, and wine event coverage, Vinography publishes new content daily to a global readership. The site's contributors work hard to create an alternative to the traditional sources and styles of wine journalism, partially through its emphasis on the stories, the people, and the passion behind wine, all told from a decidedly down-to-earth perspective. I met Alder in Austria in February of 2012 when we both visited Domaene Wachau.

Wine Anorak

Jamie Goode is a writer for several well-known English wine magazines and runs the excellent Wine Anorak website (link below). His blog is for more candid and casual discussions about life in the wine industry. "We've had a huge rise in the number of samples landing on the doorstop chez Goode…It's not that there's anything wrong with samples; rather, the problem is that you end up focusing on a skewed population of wines—those that people are most anxious to flog."

Alice Feiring

As the wine and travel columnist for Time magazine, Alice Feiring's blog is filled with musings on everything and anything she finds fascinating about the world of wine. Her mission statement is, "I'm looking for the Leon Trotskys, the Philip Roths, the Chaucers and the Edith Whartons of the wine world. I want my wines to tell a good story. I want them natural and most of all, like my dear friends, I want them to speak the truth even if we argue."

Don't call me Katie

Kate Giles has many years working in the Australian wine industry on both sides of the fence and in numerous cities. She writes her blog about issues within the Australian wine industry that influence both the domestic and export markets on the whole, saying the things most are too afraid to admit.
