Suburban Wino 2: The Wordpress Experiment

Howdy Pals! Welcome to! | August 1, 2008

If you’re reading this, then you’ve obviously taken the time to click on my site link from Twitter. That means you sacrificed your valuable time to actually take a look at my Twitter homepage in the first place. You’re really making a great first impression!

My name is Joe Herrig, and I’m a wine nerd who resides in Woodstock, GA, a lovely little corner of the world just outside Atlanta. That’s me above, with a lot more hair. While I have no work affiliation to the wine & spirits industry, like so many I’ve become enamored with the fruit of the vine, to the point of reading countless books, attending tastings aplenty, and even earning my Certified Specialist of Wine credential from the Society of Wine Educators. Obsession’s a bitch, ain’t it. Fortunately, I’ve got a loving wife willing to nurture my vice, so there’s at least one other person who doesn’t deem me “wine psycho”. Huzzah.
I started writing Suburban Wino for two reasons: One is that I have a Journalism degree that gets little-to-no use in my day job, but preaching the wonders of wholesale durable-good distribution will surely drive you away in a hurry. The other reason is that I live in the suburbs; a microcosm often void of fine food and wine. I’m trying to bring an appreciation of great vino into the fold, while not forgetting my roots. Football, tailgating, cookouts, fishing, beer, and leisure sports are great too…why should wine be mutually exclusive? In the end, it’s all about fun and bringing people together. We can do that in the ‘burbs, and we’re not afraid to be a little “rough around the edges” about it.
Also, I’m a middle child and need attention. Okay, three reasons.
Anyway, brevity’s not a strong point of mine. I really appreciate you stopping by. While this blog occasionally takes a crack at education, it’s mostly about entertainment. You’ll rarely see wine reviews, and don’t be surprised if some posts have nothing to do with wine. There’s too much out there to maintain focus, especially for a scatter-brain like me. As long as you’re laughing, I’ve done my job.
