Please include the publication(s) for which you write, or courses you teach. You are also encouraged to provide a brief biography (200 words or less).
Please send any correspondence, constructive criticism or suggestions to: email@example.com
The Bay Area Wine Writers Council was formed to address organizational problems encountered by overlapping wine events, by creating a clearing-house for all Bay Area wine tastings and events to which the press is invited.
• First, to list wine events, so that anyone can quickly log on and be able to see at a glance what events are already scheduled. Of course, it is up to the winery/distributor/importer to contact BAWWC to have its event posted.
• Second, this site will give wine industry professionals contact information for all legitimate journalists in the greater Bay Area, and provide a forum to contact all writers at a centralized place.
• Third, it will provide journalists with ways to get in touch with wine industry personnel, from wineries to Public Relations Agencies.
• Fourth, BAWWC will assist in the organization of tastings and events.
In the beginning I tried to charge a nominal fee to help defray the cost of maintaining this site, but it was not worth the time and aggravation to monitor who had paid and who hadn't. If you have a conscience, slip me $5 the next time you see me at one of the tastings listed in our schedule of events, and I'll consider you a finer person than your colleagues. --- Scott Clemens
