I was in the middle of my favorite Saturday morning activity — watching the dogs play and reading the paper — when I scanned Howard G. Goldberg’s column, Long Island Vines, and saw my name. Goldberg, who also writes for Decanter magazine, has been covering Long Island wine for the Times for decades. His column appears bi-weekly in the Long Island section of the paper.
This week he wrote about how to check in with what’s going on in Long Island Wine Country through websites and blogs. And he mentioned cellarette!
Cellarette, a blog run by Eileen Duffy, a sommelier and part owner of Six Corners, a Westhampton Beach wine shop, merits a quick visit periodically to see which Island wines inspire her enthusiasm.
He first mentioned Lenn Thompson, who obviously gets up earlier than I do, and his blog LENNDEVOURS, as well as the website for the Long Island Wine Council and the New York Wine and Grape Foundation.
What a nice surprise and an honor. Thanks Howard.
