A note from top Texas wine blogger Russ Kane

I wonder if people in Texas (and its wine community) realize how active and vibrant this community is and especially what a tremendous educational activity Texsom presents to people in (and out) of the trade that interested in learning more about wine.

See you Sat through Mon…..I’m looking forward to it.

Here is a link to my first Texsom back in 2008. It is my early attempts at field blogging and some of it (as I read it now) if pretty rough. See:


In fact, you can tell by the post number how early in my blogging activity this was! But, those of you that are just starting to blog, this is where it all starts. Blog often, post interesting and content filled material, tell your story (in your voice) and they will come. Link your blog to other social media sites: particularly Facebook and Twitter. VintageTexas is a good example of this method. When I started, I never thought that a blog devoted to Texas wines would have been as actively read as it is today.

Hopefully, I will do better this weekend than I did back in 2008.

P.S. Word of wisdom to new bloggers: drop the word “nice” as an adjective (there are other more exciting words out there), use spell check (sometime I forget), check for noun-verb agreement, and if you say something is better, finish with telliing the reader, better than what.

    full of family estates where wine is unlikely to be remembered with enthusiasm.
