Inspiring wine pictures and ten wine photo tips

Sometimes people talk about food porn referring to photographs you see in those really fancy glossy magazines. There are some food blogs that also have very good pictures. But most blogs have pictures of a “variable” quality, not least wine blogs. I do not think I have ever heard someone talk about wine porn (at […]

The profile of a wine blogger

Wine blogging probably started in the US an has been slowly spreading across the world. France was rather slow to catch on (has always been a bit of a laggard on the internet) but in recent years it has become a very active wine blogging scene. A French business student made a survey of the […]

A wine blog to visit: Svenssonsmakaren

Bear with me for just a little bit. I am not crazy. Svenssonsmakaren is a Swedish wine blog but I do recommend that you go there and take a look. It is not easy to make pictures of wine bottles or glasses (or food), especially not if you are at a wine tasting or dinner. […]

Worcester Sauce and wine. Revealed!

Last month we asked the question “what does Worcester Sauce has to do with wine?” It was sparked by the wine blog called Worcester Sauce (sometimes called Worcestershire Sauce – the sauce, not the blog) idiosyncratically written by Stuart George.
