We are very proud to announce that wine critic and blogger Eric Asimov will be providing a keynote speech at the 2011 Wine Bloggers Conference in Charlottesville, Virginia.
Eric is perfectly positioned to provide a keynote talk as he both blogs and writes print columns for the New York Times. He is also on Twitter, so will be primed for corresponding with participants at the conference!
Eric’s official bio:
“Eric Asimov is the chief wine critic of The New York Times. His weekly column appears in the Dining section of The Times, and he contributes to the Diner’s Journal blog on The Times’s web site. Naturally, he is on Twitter, too. Before he started writing full-time about wine in 2004, Asimov wrote primarily about restaurants and food. He created the $25 and Under restaurant reviews in 1992 and wrote them through 2004. He is a co-author of five editions of The New York Times Guide to Restaurants, and published four editions of “$25 and Under: A Guide to the Best Inexpensive Restaurants in New York.’’ His next book, “How to Love Wine,’’ is to be published by William Morrow in late 2011 or early 2012. Asimov is a graduate of Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn., and did graduate work in American Civilization at the University of Texas at Austin. He is married to Deborah Hofmann, has two children, Jack and Peter, and lives in Manhattan.”
We will be working with Eric in the coming months to develop his keynote talk. With both Eric and Jancis Robinson as keynote speakers, we know you will also be excited for the July conference!

I adore Eric! Makes me want to attend…..or be a wine blogger or something.

I enjoy Mr. Asimov articles. However it would be nice if he would respond more frequently to e-mail feedback to key articles in the New York Times particularly when the comments provides relevant and constructive information on the subject. The profession of a wine blogger and wine writer is demanding and busy, but it is part of the job to stay in touch with the reader’s community.
