HABLEMOS DE VINOS ECONÓMICOS

ESCRITO POR: ANDREW HALLIWELL Cuando comencé a comentar que iba a escribir un artículo sobre el vino barato, me sugirieron usar el término “vino económico” (gracias @juanicultura). Barato suena, pues, barato mientras que económico es igual de comprensible, pero no tiene las mismas connotaciones. ¿Por qué escribir sobre vinos baratos? Porque nadie lo hace. Sí,…

ON INEXPENSIVE WINES

WRITTEN BY: ANDREW HALLIWELL When I first started posting that I was going to write about cheap wine, it was suggested that I use the term ‘inexpensive wine’ instead (thanks @juanicultura). Cheap sounds well, cheap whereas inexpensive is just as understandable but doesn’t come with the same connotations. Why write about inexpensive wine? Because nobody…

Enoturismo: más allá de las experiencias

Un tema que nunca parece desaparecer en el mundo del vino es la existencia de influencers. Un artículo que salió hace poco sugirió que los influencers son solo un grupo de individuos egocéntricos y creidos que no ofrecen ningún valor a la industria del vino. Leí el artículo, porque estos artículos siempre captan la atención…

Wine tourism: Reboot Required

One topic that never seems to get old in wine writing is the existence of influencers in the wine industry. A recent article suggested that they are a bunch of self-centered and entitled individuals who offer no value to the wine industry. I read the article, because these articles always grab people’s attention, and then…

Los Vinos que Me Mantuvieron Cuerda en el 2020

Con una nueva serie de restricciones que se implementaron antes de las fiestas, los confinamientos, semi confinamientos, toques de queda y otras restricciones están poniendo a prueba una vez más nuestra fortaleza y ​​exponiendo nuestras vulnerabilidades en este mundo de Covid-19.  2020 no necesita presentación. Ha sido el año de aceptar la incertidumbre como una…

The Wines That Kept Me Sane in 2020

With a new set of restrictions rolling out prior to the holidays, lockdowns, semi-lockdowns, curfews and other restrictions are once again testing our strength and exposing our vulnerabilities in our Covid-19 world. I’m no stranger to changes and challenges, but this year has been exceptionally tough. 2020 needs no introduction. It has been the year…

The wider problem of sexism in the wine trade

If wine has no female representation, customers have no chance  WRITTEN BY: Charlie Brown Sexism in wine can take many forms. In fact, it’s so insidious, it can manifest itself in ways and at times that blindside you, leaving you wondering what the hell just happened. Did that person who you previously liked really just…

Just another wine scandal? It’s time to go deeper and name it what it is

“The wine world loves a scandal”, a wine journalist once told me. I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit over these past weeks. A scandal shocks, shakes and gives people something to talk about. But it doesn’t necessarily move people into action. What moves people into action are two powerful emotions, emotions that we’re often…

On Power and Privilege

“Although we cannot control the trolls and bullies outside the industry, those who we do not know, we should speak out when this type of behavior comes from someone in the trade”. A small excerpt from a post I wrote last week that was on my site for less than 24 hours. At about this…

MUJERES EN EL MUNDO DEL VINO, UNA CONVERSACIÓN INCÓMODA PERO NECESARIA

PRIMERA PARTE Hace un par de semanas, un hashtag se volvió viral en Instagram: #womensupportingwomen. No soy fan de los IG “challenges” y normalmente evito las tendencias del momento en las redes, pero esta vez sentí que era necesario publicar algo. El hashtag originalmente comenzó como una forma de crear conciencia sobre el feminicidio en…
