About This Site

Some wine blogs offer value recommendations. Others catalog tasting notes. Many cover the wine industry. Just about all sit dormant for weeks at a time. David White launched Terroirist on November 9, 2010 to change all that by covering everything, daily.

Terroirist was named the “Best Overall Wine Blog” at the 2013 Wine Blog Awards and the “Best New Wine Blog” at the 2011 Wine Blog Awards. It reaches approximately 30,000 readers per month.
