I feel a great affection for the wines of Maryland and Virginia — especially now that so many producers are choosing vineyard sites as vineyard sites (rather than home or horse farm locations.) The wines have never been better and the regions have never been more dynamic. It’s exciting. It’s also frustrating for me because I just can’t get down there as often as I’d like.
It is with that in mind that I’m happy to announce that Aaron Menenberg, who writes about wines from all over at Good Vitis, is joining the team as a regional editor covering Maryland and Virginia.
Aaron hails from Seattle, Washington, but made the move to the Washington, DC area in 2006 where he has remained, mostly, since then. Though forever a slave to Northwest wine, he has developed a taste for Virginia and Maryland wine through exploration and two vintages as a harvest intern at a Virginia winery. By day, Aaron works in politics, but he spends a good deal of time continuing his wine education through tasting, traveling and writing.
Welcome to the team, Aaron. Thrilled to have you, my friend!
