“When I attended the symposium as a fellowship recipient, I was brand new to the world of wine writing. The symposium gave me the confidence I needed to become a real life wine writer. When a year had passed I still made use of the contacts I made at the symposium — I’ll email other wine writers for advice; touch base with other bloggers to flesh out post ideas; and pitch editors. The followinig year was incredible and the symposium played an important role in this success. So if you’re a wine writer, go to California!”
