In Wine Spectator, Aleks Zecevic explores the white wines of Austria’s Styria region. “Styria is Austria’s best-kept secret. A drive through the region’s rolling green hills, lush forests and picturesque villages is a storybook experience, and all along the way are traditional winery-run taverns known as buschenschank, offering house wines and local hearty dishes. Most important, the quality of Styria’s wine is very much on the rise.”

In VinePair, Laura Scholz profiles Amy Bess Cook, founder of Woman-Owned Wineries (WOW), an online directory of female-identifying wine entrepreneurs. “What began as a personal passion project morphed into a movement: Initially including 50 female-owned, Sonoma-based wineries, WOW now boasts a list of 550 businesses nationwide, plus a wine club and an advocacy and storytelling platform uniting like-minded winemakers and drinkers.”
