I don’t agree with everything Elliott Morss says in these articles, and some of the perspectives are US-centric, but you might notice that he writes on many of the themes that engage me too.

I discovered the website when seeking out entries for my new blog roll, but decided the articles probably probably fit better here in a post of their own. If you want to check for new articles, I am sure you can work out how for yourself.
My blog has been without a roll so long it was starting to get embarrassing. I am actually very keen on linking, as I hope you are aware from my posts, but somehow I could never decide what to include and exclude from a blog roll.
In the end I decided not to worry too much about it. What you will find are what I find interesting - friends, and blogs that I think offer a slightly different perspective on wine and food. You will not find links to sites most wine enthusiasts already know about, and you will not find links that I have been paid for.
