Twelve months ago, I rebranded this site to Northwest Wine Report from Washington Wine Report, which it had been since 2004. Over the last year, the site has started to move toward the direction I envisioned: providing news, information, and feature article coverage of the Pacific Northwest wine industry along with wine reviews. That said, there is still a good ways to go.
Since rebranding and focusing on this site full-time, I’ve written 154 articles here and reviewed just under 1,000 wines. I’ll include some highlighted articles from the last 12 months below.
Three and a half months ago, I also moved Northwest Wine Report to a partially subscription-based site, as I’d telegraphed I would when I did the rebranding. Wine reviews and a searchable database of reviews are now paywalled. You can read more about that change and why I made it.
To those of you who have subscribed, from the bottom of my heart, thank you! I couldn’t be doing what I am doing now without you, truly.
To those who have not yet subscribed but are planning to, now is the time! I very much need your support.
To those of you who have been considering subscribing, please join us. There are annual and monthly options. You can read about them here.
I will be as blunt as I can be. The only way that this site will still be going at this time next year is if enough people subscribe.
Writing about Pacific Northwest wine over the last 20 years has been the great privilege of my life. There is truly nothing else that I would rather be doing than what I am doing here, right now, telling the stories of this industry and its wines.
That said, I’m of an age now, if I wasn’t already some years ago, that I can’t afford to not make money at what I do or have my wife carry so much of the financial load. So, again, if you find value here in what I have written over the last year or the previous nineteen and a half, please consider subscribing if you have not already.
Regardless of whether you are just finding this site today or have been following my writing over the last nearly 20 years, I thank you for reading. It is my sincere hope that you’ll continue to follow along in the months and years ahead.
