The newest wine blogger: Ray Isle at Food & Wine

The blogosphere’s newest wine blogger may be named Ray, but he’s no Rachael! Ray Isle is Senior Wine Editor at Food & Wine magazine. He promises some juicy food and wine tips on his blog:

Much of it will be alerting people to great new wines that I taste in our handy-dandy wine tasting room (around the corner from the test kitchens, a key thing as far as I’m concerned). I taste what seems to me an extraordinary amount of wine each month, only a fraction of which makes it into the magazine (largely because of space considerations)…There will also be commentary on wine and food subjects across the board, info on new restaurants that have particularly good (or bad) wine programs, spirited debate (I hope) on wine issues that people are passionate about, etc…

Mmm, tasty wine picks direct from the tasting room…Sounds good to me! And oh, he also says that he will have no Paris Hilton comments so you’ll have to stick around here for the mindless wine trivia.
