Well, happy new year to all. I am pleased to report the site has gone from strength this year with nearly 500 hits a month which is more than I ever dared hope for.
The start of a new year is traditionally a time when we can take stock of last year and make some plans for the forthcoming one.
Taking a look at the stats from my site, the most visited topic by some distance is all about declassified wine so I will try to build on this later in the springtime.
The other thing I noticed is just how French-centric my blogs are. I am unapologetic for this as I firmly believe that they make the best wines in the world. However this year I will endeavour to look further afield.
I will set myself the most difficult challenge first. It’s probably about 5 years since I bought any wine from Australia, in that time the exchange rate has worsened by nearly 40%. I remember becoming bored with their offerings as their appeared too formulaic. Many brands were owned by the same multinationals and they seemed just interested in volume. It seems that over production has meant this has changed so let’s see what they can do in a future blog.
I will leave you with my favourite wine of the past few months, and probably the best wine label ever.
