Posted on: June 12th, 2015 by

What’s a wine turtle? Well, one approached me to share my feelings on Carmenère and I didn’t really think to ask any questions before saying “Yes.”

That’s how strongly I feel about sharing my wine knowledge; I leap at the opportunity to educate with no regard for what consequences may arise.

OK, I jest. Wine Turtle is a blog run by Tim Edison. He explains, “If you’re wondering where the name Wine Turtle came from, you’re probably not the first.” Make sure you check out the “About Us” section of the site to get the story.
