Tonight I had a refreshing, crisp Extra Pale Ale from Knee Deep Brewing Company in Lincoln, CA in the Sierra Foothills. Its a single hop ale meaning they only used one varietal of hops in this case Citra which has been surging in popularity in recent years. As you would imagine from the name, ...

Introduction
I started drinking fine wines in high school.  I was allowed a single glass of wine with dinners on holidays.  It took until I was in my early 20s before I started exploring wine on my own.  

I studied microbiology at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA.  While there I dabbled in a couple of wine classes and took a quarter off to work as a lab tech at Laetitia which I loved.  Since then I've worked in four other wineries from the 300 ton Akarua Vineyards in New Zealand to the 122,000 ton Trinchero Family Estates (Sutter Home). 

I started my blog because I work in biotech these days and I missed the wine industry too much to stay completely out of it.

I have a monthly wine column in the six Marinscope newspapers.

Sample Information:  
If you are interested in sending me wine, books, or products to review, please contact me at Brian@JonesingForWine.com for a shipping address. If you decide to send me products, then you acknowledge and accept the following two conditions:

1.) I typically only review products I really like or are flawed. I won't say something sucks because I don't like the style of it, but if you have a wine with lots of brettanomyces flavors then don't send it to me.

2.) All products, including wine, that I receive as a press sample will be clearly indicated as such on the blog.
