Editor's Letter | September / by Brian Yost

The summer may be winding down, but we have an exciting lineup of writers and articles for you in the month of September. We will kick off the month with a trip to Australia, where Ava Anastasia will take us to McLaren Vale near Adelaide.  She will introduce us to wineries with extensive menus, where visitors can enjoy the region and its wines over a long lunch.  Later in the month, we will bring you a Winebird video that will pair well with this part of Australia. Helena Nicklin will introduce us to Syrah/Shiraz, which is one of McLaren Vale’s important varietals.

“There are couple things to look forward to as we finish out the year. We will be adding a food and culture component to our magazine beginning in October. We will also be rolling out a reader page, where members of our community can submit photographs and even short articles to share with other readers.”
— Brian Yost, Editor-In-Chief

Also on the September calendar is a guide to wine tourism in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Krista Lamb gives us an aggressive three-day itinerary for exploring that region. Danny Wood takes a look at area that was once the center of American wine production. He will give us some of the historical details and tell us what is happening today in Hermann, Missouri. Then we crisscross the Atlantic and hear a short account of Rebekah Pizana’s recent trip to Portugal, before we return to American east coast. I will give you the details on a pair of exciting wine bars on Bowen’s Wharf in Newport, Rhode Island. You can see that we have a lot to share. So check back with us throughout the month. 

Finally, I want to thank you for supporting WTM in our first few months. There are couple things to look forward to as we finish out the year. We will be adding a food and culture component to our magazine beginning in October. We will also be rolling out a reader page, where members of our community can submit photographs and even short articles to share with other readers. These are just two of our future plans. If there are things you want to see in WTM, we want to hear from you. Tell us about a country, region, topic or theme that interests you. We will see what we can do to bring that idea to life.

Thanks again for reading Wine Tourist Magazine.

Cheers!
