Welcome to my E-Zine on Wine. The E-Zine dates back to 1995, which is ancient history
in Internet terms. In the early '90s, I was the wine forum leader on Prodigy Classic's
internet service, which was disintegrating by the mid-90s. I then struck out on
my own, starting the E-Zine in 1995 and its Bulletin Board a couple of years later.
At the time, the E-Zine was intended to be a food-and-wine blog, except blogs didn't
really exist then. Many older articles, like "My
Dinner with Mario," are food-and-wine pieces not too much different than
the Hedonist Gazette articles that appear on eRobertParker.com. Eventually, and
slowly, it evolved into more serious wine criticism, although much of it retains
a food and wine context, as opposed to controlled tastings. The site remains in operation with its Articles Section also appearing here.
