Wine Blogger’s Conference 2012 – Part 2

Rare action shot of the interview with @RozDB
A standout Pinot Noir from Oregon.

There are lots of great blog entries about the Wine Blogger’s Conference and sometimes I feel that I’m just adding to all of the noise. But it’s been a month now since the conference has finished and I value the perspective that time has given me on what I got to experience with Oregon wines in Portland. Listening back to some of the audio that I recorded while I was there, I really got a strong recollection of what it was like to be there at the events. I’m not sure that I can really write about it as eloquently and effectively as other people have (check out posts by Jameson Fink and Becca Yeamans) but I will be trying to do just that over the next few weeks. If I can write as well as I can record, which will still only be half as good as the aforementioned bloggers, then hopefully it will fully encapsulate the diversity of experiences that I had at the conference.

From a decade+ vertical at a party.

Until then, here’s another round of audio interviews from the 2012 Wine Blogger’s Conference in Portland featuring bloggers and industry people from BC, California, Oregon, Boston, and Italy. Cheers from wine country!

  1. Thanks dude for providing information and images of Wine Blogger’s Conference 2012. I missed the conference this time due to some problem. I am big fan of wines and I love to be part of drinks related conference and parties.

      There’s more to come! I’ve got audio from the two keynote speeches in mid edit – Randal Grahm and Rex Pickett.

  2. Thanks, Luke, great job giving a snapshot of #wbc12 and a hint of #wbc13! I appreciate the link to my blog! Great job on the podcasts – now I know I’ll be spending many of those quiet winter evenings digging through your archives.

      Thanks Roz! Start with the interviews with wine makers. Bailey Williamsons Rd13 Sparkling Chenin vertical was great. Also check out John Skinner from Painted Rock, and the John Schreiner interviews – tons of info there.

      I’ll be doing more podcasts throughout the year leading up to WBC13 so that people can learn about BC wine before they arrive. It’ll be like BC Wine 101.
