Today, I finally decided to explore the blogs of a few general wine enthusiasts in Toronto, and I must say I am very impressed. I always knew there were hundreds, if not thousands, of persons out there madly in love with wine. I just never really took the time to read their opinions, look at their photos, or check out their wine ratings. No reason, I guess I've always been in my own little world when it comes to discussing wine with others, in that I don't do it very often, excepting a few critics at the LCBO tasting lab.
My first stop took me to the website of Tyler Philp, whose blog is very detailed and contains many recommendations. I like the design of the website, the style of his writing, as well as the overall sense of professionalism Philp has seemed to adopt. In all, it would be a pleasure to taste fine wine with this person. It says on his blog that he tastes with fellow enthusiasts every month. Wonder if I could partake ...
The other blog I visited today was that of Andrew Hunter, whose blog, while not nearly as developed as Philp's, nonetheless remains well worth a gander. Truly, Hunter's zest for wine is unquestionable, and I hope to see him at future tastings around Toronto.
As for the rest (and there are a lot of them), I'll have to look them up another day when I have more time. Right now, I have too many columns to write, too many notes to type up, and too many wine books to read.
