My good friend Jeff Siegel, aka the Wine Curmudgeon, is a nationally known wine blogger whose motto is “common sense talk about drinking, buying and enjoying wine.” He asks questions like “Is $100 wine 10 times better than $10 wine?”
From his website:
Jeff Siegel, the Wine Curmudgeon, is a nationally known wine writer whose blog is one of the top 100 wine sites in the world. His work has appeared on the Internet, in newspapers, and regional and national magazines, usually focusing on cheap wine. His philosophy is simple: “The wine industry tries to intimidate consumers instead of educating them — and nuts to that.”
In addition, Siegel is the co-founder and former president of DrinkLocalWine, the first locavore wine movement. He has written six books, including a travel series, and parts of four others. He lives in Dallas.
And now he is putting his years of tasting, writing and learning into a book, The Wine Curmudgeon’s Guide to Cheap Wine. Because, really, do you have to spend all that money to get good wine?
And we can help him get this thing out, while also reserving our very own copy of the book, which should be out in time for Mother’s Day. Jeff is doing a Kickstarter campaign to fund the book, with incentives like getting a signed copy, guaranteeing your second edition when it comes out, telephone consultations, and even a wine shopping tour.
Here is the video he put together for the Kickstarter:
I have already pitched in on this, and I encourage you to do the same. Invest a little now, support an independent author, and soon you’ll be a more educated and frugal wine lover.
