From Champagne Warrior to liquid nudist camp
Brad Baker is the Champagne Warrior, and he is fighting for consumers. The world of Champagne is surprisingly complex and judging it by tasting the large houses’ NV Brut bottlings is almost as bad as judging Beaujolais by each vintage’s Nouveau.
Brad’s work really dives deeply into each house’s style and technique, with great reviews of each wine that indicate not only what the wine is like today, but where Brad thinks it’s headed in the future.
The Champagne Warrior is a subscription-based newsletter, but there’s plenty to see on the site as well as downloadable sample content. If you want to know more about Champagne, the Champagne Warrior is the place to go.
Teri Citterman’s blog, subtitled “Wine Paired with Life…Think Liquid Nudist Camp”, takes an irreverent look at the wine lifestyle and is a refreshing break from many blogs that focus on reviewing one wine after another. This is fun, and with a glass of wine even funner!
Billed as the premier blog of the Napa Valley, The Cork Board offers great resources for the wine traveler. From all that’s happening in the Valley, to reviews of winery tastings and photos that let you visit Napa from the comfort of your own home, The Cork Board brings Napa Valley to life.
