My name is Patrick Alexander and I have been drinking wine for sixty-five years. When my doctors and my wife suggest that I should maybe curb my enthusiasm for wine, I like to explain that I am only doing it for research purposes and that I owe it to the readers of my book and the students in my class, to be as well informed as possible. So today, as I begin this new blog, dedicated to the pleasures of wine, I accept that the pressure upon me to continue my research have grown that much greater. Nonetheless, I owe it to my readers to persevere
I shall strive to do so.
