Some things happening in wine media that are making me very jazzed

As a wine person (blogger, drinker, publicist, etc.) I’ve grumbled many a grumble over the state of the wine media. For every Eric Asimov column that elicited an enthusiastic fist pump, there was a letter from an editor about the risks of purchasing futures that set my eyes rolling far back into the depths of my head. There just seemed to be a lot of the same-old-same-old. With so many exciting things happening in the wine world, I was getting bored.

With the start of 2014 comes change. Here are two things happening in wine media that make me happy:

1. Two new wine online magazines have made their debut:

Grape Collective

2. A committed shift away from the usual suspects when it comes to regional coverage.
