Rest assured that you’ll never find a “plug” on this blog, unless it’s a shameless one

A few months ago, the Winos found color photos of themselves in various stages of intoxication splattered across the pages of a nationally-distributed publication.  However, what was even more impressive than the time one of our celeb-studded wine brawls wound up in US Weekly was the time that the Winos were featured in Mutineer Magazine!  (See what I did there?  The old irony-laden bait-and-switch.  Like when you offer your friend a glass of Romanée-Conti, and he thinks he’s getting a Romanée-Conti AOC, but then you actually pour him a La Tâche.  Ooooh, burn!)

sidebar_cover.jpgThe January/February issue of Mutineer features a four-page article called “Rebel Spirit,” penned by yours truly, in which an unassuming wine writer from southern California travels to New York State’s first whiskey distillery to operate since Prohibition and investigates the bizarre and unpredictable world of micro-distilling.  The Mutineer website describes the piece as follows: “veteran scribe Jesse Porter goes Gonzo in this piece that explores the exploding craft spirits scene in the United States, featuring Finger Lakes Distilling, Tuthilltown Spirits, Philadelphia Distilling, and Dry Fly Distilling.”  That’s right, I’m a “veteran scribe” named “Jesse Porter” and I “went gonzo.”  C’mon, who doesn’t want to read that?
