Wine blogger wanted

I need a wine blogger.

Look, I'm a beer guy, a whiskey guy. I know them really well. But a major piece of the PLCB puzzle is wine. Wine buyers are probably the folks who are the most majorly pissed-off at the PLCB, and rightly so. But I don't know that much about wine except what I like and don't like. So I'm looking for a PA-based wine blogger who's fed up with the PLCB and would like to write about that.

Send your suggestions, links to blogs, or your names. I'm looking for established wine bloggers, good writers, someone with the chops to find and explain good, solid reasons that the PLCB should be abolished because of how they handle wine. Anyone out there?

Lew - go chat with Keith Wallace of the Wine School of Philadelphia - http://www.vinology.com - nobody knows wine and the wine scene in Philly better than Keith.

I thought this blog was all about whine? LOL!

Another possibility is David Snyder (philafoodie.blogspot.com)

Hi Lew,
Hope all is well. I am a Ralph Kerr's best friend in the whole wide worldfriend AND I write a wine blog called "Cheap Wine Serenade". Check it out. It is a wry, pithy sweet little blog if I do say so myself. I think I could be your wine blogger. If you're interested, let's talk. I work cheap.
Regards,
Vin Raimondo

According to the quiz I took on the Wine Schools Website Marnie Old founded the Wine School! Maybe you should talk to her?

Marnie Old certainly knows her wine -- just caught her act with Sam Calagione in Montreal -- but that would kind of be like asking Rick Nichols to do a little food blogging for me...

I don't think Marnie Old founded the Wine School. That would be Keith Wallace.

FYI, Dave Snyder would be great, but its unlikely he would take on any more projects. He just got the food critic gig at the City Paper.
