Drink Away the Recession Blues


On a (much) lighter note, Robyn Dixon of the L. A. Times, whose coverage of Zimbabwe has been the ballsiest anywhere, showed her range recently by catching a trend toward high-quality, value-oriented South African wines amid this disastrous economy. She even caught President Obama sipping the stuff. http://tinyurl.com/c5fnx5. It's a great read.
(Disclosure, I'm friendly with Robyn, the winemaker she wrote about Eben Sadie. Plus my brother, Sam Timberg, imports South African wine for a living. How's that for a trifecta conflict?) In any case, read away, or drink away, or both....

For my minor offering on the subject of South African wines and the perils of global warming, check out: http://tinyurl.com/czk5sf. (Wrote this before Eben and I were friends).

  1. I like the writing structure of your blog and it does a pretty decent job of presenting the material.
