    Congrats on the WBC Scholarship. I attended the first two in Santa Rosa because I could sleep in my own bed! I noticed on your site that you put out a call for guest writers last year. How did that work for you? I ask because I made a similar request that was mentioned byTom Wark on his blog and it came up empty. I write and publish a bi-monthly wine review magazine focused on West Coast wines. In the past I included articles by guest writers and stopped several issues ago because it became more difficult to get people to commit. Readers have not seemed to miss them, but I am always open to thoughtful research and opinion on US wines.

      Thank you so much, Doug! I’m very excited to be attending the WBC this year!

      I did have a couple of interested parties in regards to guest writers, so I’m happy about that. It’s difficult when one is working on a very tiny budget! I wish I had enough money to pay someone on a regular basis, but until then, I’ll have to keep trying my luck at getting writers who don’t mind being paid little (or nothing) for their time and efforts!

    Hi Becca,

    I just dicovered your blog and absolutely love it! Being a total wine nerd 🙂 A question related to the Horizontal vs Vertical sur lis aging article from Feb: If the lees do not sink uniformly in a “pancake”, but one by one, wouldn’t vertical tanks improve the area-to-wine, as each yeast molecule travels through the wine for longer? Unless the effect is primarily determined by the time during which the lees are on the bottom of the tank (when the horizontal tank would obviously have a larger surface area in contact with the wine)

    Thank you!
