What do you think about Alsace requiring the word "sec" or "dry" for their dry styled wines?
Here are my thoughts and I would love to hear your thoughts as well.

I have wonderful news, I was placed on the shortlist for Emerging Wine Writer of the Year for the Louis Roederer International Wine Writers' Awards. I submitted posts from my blog www.damewine.com. I am very honored and simply speechless, and if you know me, then you know that is quite an accomplishment. Here's the shortlist for all the categories: http://www.mmdltd.com/lriwwa-2015-shortlist-announced/ #wine #winelover

Farewell until after the Exams  .. and some thoughts that are rolling around in my head as I turn forty, go into final preparations for the exam and as the 10th Anniversary of the passing of my Step Father approaches in another month and 1/2 (a man who took responsibility for me when I was not his responsibility), I exam my past, present and future. #winelover #wine #damewine

<p>Champagne is a great sparkling wine made not only in a particular way, but is from a specific place. We drink it during the best times in our lives: births, weddings, anniversaries and career promotions. What makes it so special? It’s the magic. <a href='http://www.lavocedinewyork.com/Champagne-questione-di-magia/d/10234/'><strong>(In italiano</strong></a>).</p>

My first intro article as #Wine Columnist for La VOCE di New York. I am so excited to share my love of wine with all ‪#‎winelover‬-s! Article is in English and Italian. http://www.lavocedinewyork.com/Around-the-World-in-a-Glass-of-Wine-departing-from-NYC/d/10009/ #winelover  
<p>How could <em>La VOCE di New York </em>not have a space for good drinking? Introducing our new column in which we'll tell stories of wine in New York City, between innovation and tradition, with a look at the trends and a touch of lightness (<strong><a href='http://www.lavocedinewyork.com/Il-giro-del-mondo-in-un-bicchiere-di-vino-con-partenza-da-New-York/d/10008/'>Leggi in italiano</a></strong>)</p>

How and why do grape growers prune vines throughout the year? (Bordeaux drinking earlier due mainly to better viticulture…) ‪#‎damewine‬ ‪#‎winelover‬ ‪#‎PichonBaron‬ ‪#‎Bordeaux‬

Wine Nerd, MW candidate, celebrating colorful characters in the wine biz.. and I am a character myself!
Introduction

Hello,

I moved to New York City over 20 years ago from New Orleans, Louisiana with just a couple of pieces of luggage, tons of enthusiasm in my heart, and a never say die attitude.  I did not have a “real” home growing up or sense of family, but found my family and home in this crazy city with the colorful wine biz .  New York City has the greatest variety of the two things I love most: Wine & Characters. I’m here to celebrate the diversity of wine and the characters in the wine biz that cross my path in NYC – as well as me crossing their paths when I travel to other awesome areas around the world!

I have an electrical engineer husband, Ken, who is as nerdy about wine as I am, currently a Masters of Wine candidate, WSET Diploma graduate,  and recently became the Wine Columnist for La VOCE di New York. I have over a decade worth of experience selling various wines from around the world in the Manhattan market, such as entry level large brands, small artisanal producers, and ultra premium fine wines.

Cheers, Cathrine Todd
