San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2007
It's travel season at Barbara Adams' Beyond Wonderful! This month, resident wine expert Michael De Loach shares a wealth of insider information about California's legendary wine country. He also covers two less celebrated (but equally enticing) winemaking regions: Portland, Oregon and New York's finger lakes.
De Loach's enticing travel stories are equally entertaining whether you're planning a real life vacation or simply imagining a future adventure. Each article includes recommended routes and lists of "must-see" wineries, as well as detailed suggestions for accommodations and dining, with options to suit every taste and budget.
Among the web's premier wine columnists, De Loach brings wit, wisdom and a welcome irreverence to the often-intimidating world of wine. This month, in addition to his travel guides, De Loach serves up a sharp analysis of justwinepoints -- an influential newcomer in the world of wine ratings publications.
De Loach is just one member of the Beyond Wonderful (http://www.beyondwonderful.com) culinary expert panel, which also includes Catherine Christiansen on baking, Mark Todd on cheese and Dan "The Produce Man" Avakian on produce. Beyond Wonderful also showcases other guest professional chefs on a rotating basis.
