Pub alert! I’m a wine writer now

I hate to be winey… but wait. I love wine. So much so that I wrote about it and got published!

Peanut Butter and Jelly wine is a creation by Windy Wine Company in Missouri.

I wrote an article in the fall about quirky Missouri wines, and it was just published in Midwest Wine Press. It highlights three unique wines, a peanut butter and jelly wine, raspberry chipotle wine and a jalapeño mead.

You can read it here, if you’re interested.

It was my first time being published as a freelancer. I owe a huge thanks to Nina Furstenau. In her class we learned about query letters and also refined our food and wine writing skills. If you’re a journalism student at MU I highly recommend taking her class Will Write for Food or Wine… or really any class she teaches. She’s amazing.

The wine industry seems like a pretty friendly place. I’ve even been invited to the regional wine conference in March, hopefully I can make some time to attend in between classes, work and my capstone.
