I am updating my lists of alternative varieties and producers. My dear abase is over ten years old so there are many records to be discarded. On the positive side there are lots of new innovative producers and many established wineries are broadening their range. If you know of a new producer of an obscure variety please Let me know.

Do you write a wine blog or website that has lots of readers, or maybe a big social media following. A new way of earning money from your traffic is being developed. No charge, no fees, no risk, a no brainer really.

Trafeze does to online marketing what Uber does for ridesharing. It will be huge for wine smallbiz and bloggers...

This is the story of Mary and Bob. Two solopreneurs, like you, who didn't know each other, but had a similar problem.

Mary is crazy about Cocker Spaniels. Training them, grooming them, keeping them in tip-top health — she covers it all on her website. And her thousands of daily visitors are crazy about Mary!

Bob scrapes a living painting portraits of pets from photos. Trouble is, there’s not enough demand for Bob’s services locally.

Mary doesn’t know Bob — not yet. Bob also loves his animals. They’d get on if they met, though. That’s unlikely since they live 3,000 miles apart. Or is it?

And now, the rest of the story ->

A nice little intro to the wine regions in British Columbia on Canada's west coast.
“Wineries in Canada, who knew?” This was a recent comment on our post Top 5 Wineries of the World. Who knew? Well, we knew, and so did thousands of other lucky Canadians! The wineries in our home province of British Columbia are world-renowned and the fertile soils produce some award winning grapes. Stretching from Vancouver Island,... Read More
