Welcome to Kory Wilcox’s The Sippy-Cup.
I’m taking a break in 2011! We have a lot going on this year, and I think that when I have the chance to kick back with a glass, I’d rather focus on enjoying it than reviewing it. However, if you are interested in becoming a contributor, please comment and let me know!
2010 was a decent wine year, averaging a little more than a review per month. We’ve started delving into some of the selections we brought home from Napa Valley in 2009, and you can look forward to more of that in the future. For some pictures and highlights from our visit to America’s wine country, visit my website and click on “photo albums.”
If you came here looking for a specific wine, please take note that the search feature is inclusive, so if you want to search for a specific rating, brand, name, blend, and/or tasting characteristic, just type them in the search box seperated by spaces. Note that search does not include categories or comments.
If you’re here looking for general reviews of a specific style of wine, the “Find A Wine” drop down to your right will let you drill down by category to find reviews. Reviews will be displayed 25-to-a-page, so depending on how broad your category choice is, you might have to keep digging to find something that interests you.
My goal for this site remains to create among friends a place where we can learn our palettes and share our thoughts about wine, but without any snobbery or elitism. My taste is certainly not a purely objective measure of a wine’s value; there’s still plenty of subjectivity and inexperience at work here. Nevertheless, I am trying my best to be unbiased as I continue to explore the world of wine.
In any case, whether reading or contributing, my thanks to you for being a part of The Sippy-Cup. Happy sipping!
