WOW! The internet is a great resource with so much information about making wine, buying wine supplies and research articles about the most current research topics!

Here are some of my favorite resources:


So much information – so little time to review it! Use the web to keep track of current research, reviews, practical articles and so much more.

Here are some of my favorite magazines and their websites:

Practical Winery (year after year great practical articles for the grape grower and wine maker)

Wine Business Monthly (another great resource and great website with current ads for grapes, wines, job, etc.)

Vineyard and Winery Management (good columnists including Wilfred Wong and Elizabeth Slater (the longtime organizer of the Dry Creek Passport event!)

Wines and Vines (venerable producer of the Wines and Vines Directory and Buyers Guide)

Wine Spectator
