The focus is red wine and to get right to it without distraction, click The Wine Commonsewer Speaks. The rest of the enchilada is just enough of an
eclectic mix of commentary on culture, food, tax, and econ 101 to
distract from the focus on red wine.
We appreciate your patronage.

Several people nominated The Wine Commonsewer for several categories of Wine Blog Awards over at Fermentation, The Daily Wine Blog.
That's a lot better than 2008, when I didn't get any nominations at all. Back in 2007 there were about a dozen or more people who nominated TWC.
I sincerely appreciate the enthusiasm but I only need one nomination to be considered for an award. Some folks are overwhelming the comment section with multiple dozens of nominations for the same wine blog. Please, no more nominations for TWC.
The competition is stiff so wish me well. Thanks so much.
Just got a note from Benito congratulating TWC on surviving the blog
business for four years. His note reminded me that I forgot about
bringing that bit of gratuitous self-promotion to your attention back in January when
we began our fifth year of publication.
Blogging is self-indulgent and
narcissistic, but it keeps me out of the bars. Cash money? Better keep
your day job, Junior. There is the occasional bottle of wine, a little
bit of name recognition, and the lovely emails that you, Gentle Reader, send my way, which are very much appreciated (comments too).
TWC began life in the late nineties as an almost-daily email newsletter. It was billed as the world's longest running floating website. That's something like a floating crap game, which never has a real home. It wasn't really a website, but the newsletter sort of took the format of what came to be known as a weblog. Eventually, the spammers and the anti-spam software took it's toll on the email version and in January 2005 TWC moved to the blog format which evolved into what you see today.
Many thanks to all of you for your time, your comments, your emails, your encouragement, and your friendship. As long as it's still fun, I'll still do it.
