I’ve “known” Adrian Prieto for a while now, almost entirely through his Instagram persona @wino_dino. It’s long overdue that I invite him to use the Cork Report site as a platform for his less snobby/geeky/nerdy, more populist approach to wine.
For those who don’t know him, he is a freelance wine writer and consultant based in the Finger Lakes, which is the region he’ll be covering for the site. His writing has appeared in places like Winetraveler and The Vintner Project.
By day, he works in development and fundraising where he focuses on supporting communities of color. He lives with his wife and daughter and a multitude of pets near Ithaca. You should really follow him on Instagram to meet his dogs, who like to play in his backyard while he sips wines and takes wine photographs.
And, you should join him – and a cast of fun Finger Lakes wine lovers – for “Finger Lakes Instagram Live” on December 9 at 8:30 p.m. ET. That’s tomorrow, so go follow him now.
