To my fellow wine lovers,
For several years I have wanted to launch a local magazine that reflects the multi-faceted world of wine. I knew I could not do this alone, but still forged ahead with my idea. Fast forward almost three years and I have unveiled my passion:
Cork it! magazine.
With the help and partnership of my colleague and dear friend, sommelier Chris Thorn, we have put together sound ideas that we hope will transform the Memphis wine market. Cork It! will be where the changing world of wines is promoted, challenged, and where learning about wines, old and new, expensive and affordable, is presented in ways you can enjoy and understand.
As you browse the magazine and website, notice the local restaurants and the delicious cuisine and pairings they offer; peer into the personal wine cellars of local wine collectors as they share their passion with us; explore the opinions from local and national experts in the magazine and our blog; and decide for yourself the clarification and definition of mystique that surrounds this exciting industry.
Our goal is to bring you concepts the wine novice will find enlightening, the wine lover will find challenging, and thought-provoking opinion for the expert to ponder and discuss.
I would love to hear from you. If you have any suggestions or comments for my future issues please email me. Lastly, please be sure to inform each wine professional you contact through the magazine
that you saw them in Cork it!, either online or in the magazine.
