Oregon Wine Pioneers Review

vine-lives-frontThe Journal of Wine Economics is the official publication of the American Association of Wine Economists (AAWE). You can imagine how pleased I was when the editor contacted me for a review copy of Oregon Wine Pioneers. It was reviewed by McMinnville-based writer Neal D. Hulkower who concluded:

The writing in OWP struck me as literary, impressionistic and passionate. We share moments of realization with Warncke: “Voila. The missing piece. The link. The glue. I should have guessed. The clue is in the name: A to Z. You can say anything with 26 letters and this is a winery dedicated to expression. Climate, soil, elevation, varietals, and water, are the winemaker’s alphabet” (OWP, p. 56). I also enjoyed the clever analogies Warncke draws. In describing the career path of Tom Symonette of Whistling Dog Cellars, she writes “…a picture emerges of a man whose life – like the vines he tends with such intense affection – had three buds. Two of which, removed, left one strong shoot”.
