Mailbag Monday: Country/Region Info?

Hi Alleigh,
I’m a huge fan of your blog!  I really like your honest opinions of wine, and you often introduce me to new wines/varietals.  Can I ask one question or make a request?  Since my liquor store breaks their wines out by country/region, I don’t always know where to look for a wine after I’ve seen it on your blog.  I know you usually put it in the body of the post, but I would love to see it in the title or more prominently displayed. 

Thanks for the great read, I look forward to more wines! 

Your ever faithful, never leaving you, Sauvignon Blanc (and now Vetliner) loving reader….

Dear SB/GV lover—
Thanks for the email and for the suggestion.

The whole purpose of A Glass After Work is to share the wines I drink with the hope that my readers will go out and try the wines I love.  Some readers even let me know if they agree or disagree with my review, which is particularly fun for me. Therefore, I take requests and suggestions on how to improve and how to be more helpful to my readers to heart.

In August 2010, for example, I started posting a short summary at the bottom of each post so that readers would know the price of each wine and where I purchased it because several readers in the DC Metro area had emailed to find out where I purchased several of the wines.  At the time, I figured if a handful of readers were outgoing enough to email and ask, even more readers were probably interested in the information.  So, Hubby and I talked about it the best technological way to include this information, and he ended up building a plug-in to make it easy for me to uniformly add it on every post.

Including the information your asking for in this short summary at the end of the post would definitely make it easier for readers to use A Glass After Work when shopping in their own local wine store.  I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before, but it’s a great idea. Hubby is hard at work making a few tweaks that I hope to unroll next week.  So, be on the lookout for them!

Thanks again for the suggestion and for being a regular reader!
