A Call to Winemakers (Email me...)

You may (or may not) have noticed that last week's posts did not include a Meet the Winemaker interview. Neither will this week's. For this, I apologize. I should be more active in seeking winemakers' participation. But, I also have to ask winemakers to respond to my emails (hint hint). I have sent at least a dozen emails to winemakers, but have yet to hear back from them. Well, I have heard back from a few, but only to tell me that they would respond soon. I'm still waiting... I get the feeling that more than a few Colorado winemakers would benefit from reading 1WineDude's post on engaging the people who actually drink their wine.

Sure, there are still plenty of winemakers that I haven't contacted, and if you are reading this please don't feel like I don't want to hear from you; I probably just don't have your email. It is okay for winemakers to be proactive and contact me. In fact, I urge you to do so. (If I don't have your email, your website is probably not a great place to get information...)

If you are winemaker that has already participated or if you are just a fan of the site and enjoy reading this series as much as I enjoy writing it, please urge any other Colorado winemakers that you know to contact me. My email is quite simple: coloradowinepress@gmail.com. Part of the reason I decided to start this interview series was to get people in the industry to get to know each other. I have been quite surprised to find out how little Colorado's winemakers interact with each other. I'd like to think that winemakers might like to get to know their colleagues (and competition). But, hey, I've been wrong before (as my wife will eagerly tell you...).

That is all for today...
