Older Wine & Libation writings              A Wine Blog


I’ve written about wine and other libations for many newspapers and magazines including the Norwich Bulletin, Northeast Magazine, The Hartford Courant, Seasons, Connecticut Business Magazine, Hartford Magazine, Decades and The Shoreline Times since 1998, sometimes with my wife, local radio and television personality Prudence Sloane. We’ve written about, and occasionally lectured on food and wine pairing. I currently write for the New England Wine Gazette.

I also take the photographs for many of the articles.

I’ve visited winemaking regions in California and most other regions in the USA, Argentina, Chile, Spain, Italy, France, and yes, England, where they make very good wine!

Reporting on the Boston Wine Expo, the largest wine expo in the U.S. since 2000  I’ve interviewed many vinous luminaries such as Jancis Robinson, Oz Clarke, Clive Coates, Kevin Zraly, Mary Ewing Mulligan and Leslie Sbrocco.
