Happy 6 Year Anniversary Winexpression

cabernet_grape_clusterFour score and two thousand one hundred and eleven days ago, this wine blog first graced the world with it’s presence. In a lack luster post with minimal verbiage and a link that now points to a broken page, the blog set a standard that it has continued to uphold down to today.

This site still remains a hobby for myself, and as a means to inform my friends of wine news, values, and the occasional rare find. Are there better wine bloggers out there with more dedication, a better grasp of grammatical syntacticationality, and more time on their hands? You betcha! But, that doesn’t mean I’m throwing in the keyboard or slowing down. On the contrary, I believe this medium is constantly developing and I plan on progressing with it.

Here’s to another 6 years.
