Write to Travel Heads for Wine Bloggers Conference...

Posts on Write to Travel have been few and far between these days and the main reason is because of new blog project I've been working on for the past six months or so.

There's a litte bit of travel, a little bit of green, and a little bit of wine involved in this new project called The Green Wine Guide. It's a site that aims to focus on everything about eco-friendly, sustainable wines and wineries. Right now, there's not much there except a few articles and a design that illustrates where the site will eventually be heading.

Meanwhile, I'm heading to Northern California wine country to learn more about many of their wineries sustainable and eco-friendly practices. Right now, I'm sitting in San Franscisco, but first thing this morning I headed for Santa Rosa and the 2nd annual Wine Bloggers Conference to meet up with fellow wine bloggers and learn more about wines and wineries.

As you can imagine, heading over to California isn't cheap, especially with how the dollar exchange rate is right now. But I applied for and received some assistance from the Wine Bloggers Scholarship that was set up by some dedicated wine bloggers who set out and found companies interested in donating to the cause.

The donations from these companies - Vin 65, vintank, Click Media Works, Gundlach Bundschu, WARK Communications, domaine547, Sobon Estate,, St. Supéry Vineyards and Winery, Benson Marketing Group, Hahn Wines, Travessia, Iredisse, Hello Vino, cruvee, Cornerstone Cellars, and Flamingo Resort Hotel & Spa - has provided financial assistance to over 11 wine bloggers (me included) and for that I offer heart felt thanks.
