This is the Story of a Post

So tonight, I was going to make a post. A real, legitimate post, all about wine and stuff. You see, I have three different posts swirling around in my head that just need to come out in prose for your on Le Tour de Pinot, Stage 3; one on the Pre-WBC Yamhill-Carlton Tour; and one on a RoxyAnn Claret that is delicious. Alas, I have failed, and all you get tonight is me rambling about why I haven't written a real post in like 2 weeks. In the time it is taking me to write this, I could have completed one of the aforementioned stories, but I figured this would be more entertaining and take less mental acuity. So there it is.

So let me start out by saying that my life is currently packed away in boxes. My wine collection is strewn among two locations, the wine rack currently empty. That's right, I'm moving. Rick is moving as well, this means two things. First off, the headquarters of The Oregon Wine Blog is being relocated to a different location in Corvallis (my place), and, we now have a writer working out of Portland (Rick). With writers in Salem, Corvallis, and Portland, we now will provide more comprehensive coverage of the Willamette Valley, in addition to our coverage out of Seattle, Spokane, and Sonoma. Word. What other wine blog gives you that type of variety?

All day, I was making plans for what my evening would look like. Dinner, some errands, the gym, packing, and then making a wine blog post. I really needed to get a post up, or my fellow wine blog staffers would be upset (even though I started the blog). I got home...cooked dinner...ran some errands...went to the gym...opened a bottle of wine...and did some packing.  Well, right around the 7th box of personal effects and 3rd glass of wine, all ability to coherently and intelligently post about a topic of value went out the window, or down the drain, or in a box, depending on your perspective. So, you're stuck with my rambling.

All this to say, look foward to some awesome content in the next couple of weeks. We've got the three posts mentioned above, the International Pinot Noir Celebration, some other enterprise articles, and I sent a bottle of Pend d'Orielle for review to Portland with Rick so now he has an excuse to crack that open.

Now, back to your scheduled programming.


  1. Excuses, excuses!!! Reality is that we all work at universities and at least for me, we are preparing for our staff and students to return so I too have seen a drop in production. Perhaps this weekend I will make a trip to Sonoma!

  2. We wish some of you guys would join us at "Discover the Wines of the McMinnville AVA", we'd love to see you there!!

  3. Sounds like an awesome event, we'll try to check it out!
