Welcome to the Official Uncorked Ventures Blog

Welcome to the official Blog of Uncorked Ventures. We hope you’ll find this to be a space which allows for continued direct interaction, but also an informational resources for wine drinkers. While we’ll try and share information on wine regions, wineries, winemakers, related businesses within the industry and of course those folks who own and manage anyone in the above groups. Over time you’ll be accustomed to seeing interviews, AVA informational articles, descriptions of winemaking techniques, recommendations for unknown quality wineries and much more.

One thing both Matt and I have enjoyed about opening Uncorked Ventures is the amazing access we’ve been accorded within the wine industy. From our first meeting with winemaker/GM Jean Hoefliger at Alpha Omega we’ve been amazed at the access we have to decision makers and the people who really make this industry such a special one to be a part of. So many of our friends and family enjoy hearing these stories and while we’ve tried to share them at times on our personal blogs (Mark & Matt), keeping a more centralized version here makes sense long term. Of course, we realize there are also a good number of people who would like to join the industry so we hope some of our interview series will help people to see what it’s like behind the scenes.

Lastly, yes we both read plenty of other wine blogs. From well known outlets such as Vinography and Fermentation which cover the wider industry to more localized blogs such as the NY Cork Report blogs and bloggers can be an invaluable resource to us, but also to our readers. Over time, we hope to bring not only blogger interviews, but also guest blogs in this space.

If you have questions, please feel free to send them our way (info we’re happy to help answer wine related questions and much more.
