Richard Ehrlich in the Independent  Add/Read Comments

As John writes over on UKWinesOnline, Richard Ehrlich has penned his last column for the Independent. He doesn't seem that impressed with the state of the wine blogosphere basically slating a vast majority of what is published.

Shame too that he didn't mention Spittoon (he has previously praised Scribblings, the email newsletter that spawned Spittoon) but, as Editor of Wine Sediments, his comment "There are sometimes good things on winesediments, put together by a like-minded international group" is some recompense.

This entry Richard Ehrlich  in the Independent is under News


Richard's frustration with the poor side of blogging is, in my view, poorly framed. If you want the benefit of opening up discussion to a wider pool of writers, which I imagine we all do, wether via blogs or whatever, there is bound to be good and not so good out there. You cannot have one without the other. I don't understand his problem. The world is not made up only of MW's.
