Greetings from, now 1,196 winery listings strong!

WineRelease emailed the results of the Wine Manipulation Survey conducted in December last month to those of you who responded to the survey. The results and a Podcast with Nick Ramkowsky, who has experience with winemaking, are both available here. Can you guess which wine manipulation method is most controvesial? Download the results to see how your opinion compares to your peers (both consumers and winery personnel).

I am pleased to report my youngest niece Gaeby was accepted to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, so I once again have a Central Coast wine region designated driver.

And now, on to the show...
