Blog: Olly WehringThe just-drinks forums - talk to the world

Olly Wehring | 6 March 2007

As many of you already know – and, judging by the rising number of posts, quite a few of you already do – the forums have kicked off again on just-drinks, giving you the opportunity to talk with other drinks professionals about the issues that concern you.

The latest three subjects prove fascinating reading. Take a look here for one viticulturist's response to concerns that organic wine is falling well short of the grade.

Over here, meanwhile, is a post from Simon Waller, the VP of global sales for Supreme Corq, giving his side to the long-running debate about wine closures.

Something for everyone, I feel – if you disagree, then you know what to do: Get posting!
