Re: March Wine Focus - Farther on up the Rhone!

The only info I could really get was a bio on the author who seems to be a wine enthusiast with only a few years part-time experience in the wine trade.

So my questions are:

1) Does anyone here subscribe to Jeb's report and is it reliable?

2) Is it common for people to set up subscription sites with relatively little experience?


Jon,

While I am not a subscriber, I have been reading Jeb's notes and commentaries for many years elswhere on the web. He knows what he is talking about. His palate preferences are a little different than mine, but he's not some newbie trying to make a quick buck.
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.

That being said, though, for my money I'd be far more likely to subscribe to John Livingstone-Learmonth's DrinkRhone site than Jeb Dunnick's but that's just my preference. As it is, I subscribe to neither and just buy JLL's books :D
