Wine Blog Spotlight: Wine Camp

In my continuing series on wine blogs I think you should read, I’m again reaching into the depths of my blogroll, down to the “Ws” where folks don’t often seem to venture.  I’m actually contemplating reverse alphabetizing the blogroll for a while to encourage people to click on the wine blogs in the latter half of the alphabet.  Today I bring you Wine Camp, the wonderful wine blog authored by Craig Camp.

Craig, whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person at the wine blogger conference last year, started Wine Camp way back in April of 2005.  Four years at wine blogging makes you one of the founding fathers in my humble opinion….there weren’t many around then, and even fewer that are still at it four years later.  Wine Camp’s slogan is “A points free zone.”  Craig, like me, doesn’t rate wines, he talks about them in the context of what he finds in the glass, the company he shares them with, and where the wine came from, putting it into place compared to other wines from the same region or variety.

However, Craig brings much more to the table than simply wine reviews on Wine Camp.  Craig currently works with Cornerstone Cellars in Napa, and previously worked up at a winery in Oregon.  He knows his wine stuff inside and out, and delivers a a well-rounded perspective on the wine world, whether that is commentary on happenings in the wine blog world or timely pictures of bud break in Napa.  I’ve been reading Wine Camp for about three years now, and it’s high on my list of “do not miss” reads.  You should hop on over to Wine Camp, add it to your feed reader, and enjoy the musings of the well-written and entertaining Craig Camp.
