happy holidays
N E X T P A G E >

Well, if everything goes smoothly (which for us here at Wine X is anything short of chaos), this issue will probably find you knee-deep in shopping, worrying about where to place Great Uncle Earl at the holiday dinner table and deeply entrenched in exploring New Year's hangover remedies! Yep, just another holiday season.

The first thing you should know about this issue is that it doesn't contain a trite "Holiday Tasting Report" on Champagne/sparkling wines. We believe that offering such a feature around the holidays is the equivalent to a retailer announcing a super sale one minute before closing. What's the point if there's no time to go out and buy the stuff? Our philosophy at Wine X? Give savvy readers ample time to actually go out and find the bottles that we've reviewed. So if you're looking for holiday sparkler recommendations, check out our previous issue (Vol. 2.2).

But, what will you find in this issue? Well, Senior Editor Rosina Tinari Wilson tackles alternative holiday recipes with Flippin' the Bird, which will add an original touch to your festive plans. Globe-trotting feature writer Scott Stavrou manages to infiltrate Oktoberfest and files his tactics on Invading Germany. Then there's Steven Van Yoder's An American Bad Boy Gets a Makeover, which provides an in-depth look at whiskey -- its origins, differences in style and consumer appeal. Next, Tina Caputo Goes Big when she uncovers the lost tradition of crowning California Wine Queens. And on the more surreal side, Bob Blumer (a.k.a. The Surreal Gourmet) compares and contrasts American and French culinary rituals in French Dressing. (By the way, has anyone seen Bob's pumps?)

A quick note regarding the graphic elements of Wine X. It's probably safe to say that through our first six issues (Vol. 2.1 - 2.6) our art directors will be experimenting with different design layouts and color elements. Although it's our goal to push the limits of editorial and aesthetic content, it's also imperative that we create the ultimate user-friendly forum. And that means a comfortable, easy-to-read environment that stimulates readers both visually and intellectually. Needless to say, your feedback is important to us. Let us know what you like, don't like or take offense to. We're always open to improving your magazine.

Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season!

'til next issue...
