Time to move on…


If you’re one of the people that occasionally pops by to see if I’ve posted anything, I’ll save you a couple of seconds from now on. I’ve decided to call time on Tinto y Blanco after 6 years, and if you hadn’t noticed there has been a distinct lack of effort on my part over the last 6 months or so. But there is a really good reason why.

Earlier this year, my wife and I were presented with the opportunity to import the  wines of some of our favorite producers in Rioja. We’ve jumped on board and have formed a small import company called Cosecha Imports, our first shipment has just arrived and will be ready for sale in the next month or so. Given that we are now importing wine from Spain, I felt that it was not a good idea to go writing reviews of the other importers wares, regardless of how small the company is or how much wine we import.

So, Tinto y Blanco will be frozen as it is, but with comments and posts turned off shortly, for a little while longer. Of course, if you need to, I can be reached on the same email address.

I do want to say a big thank you to all of the importers who supported the site and sent in wines, invited me to tastings and hooked me up with appointments with their producers in Spain. And to everyone who commented on posts, sent in emails, shared links and conversations along the way. Not forgetting the retailers who gave me discounts and ordered in obscure wines from unknown importers…thanks. I’ve found many friends along way, and for that alone I’ve gotta say thanks.

There is a blog over at the Cosecha Imports site, plus a twitter account, email and even a mailing list, so please keep in touch and keep drinking Spanish booze.

  1. Hi Dave,

    Sad to see you move on from blogging here, but it sounds like there’s great things on the horizon. Have really enjoyed your blog over the years.

    Best of luck!


  2. Hi Dave,

    Onwards and upwards young man….I’ve greatly enjoyed reading your blog, good luck with the new venture and I hope to catch up for that overdue glass of wine in the near future.

    All the best

  3. A shame to see you go, but great to see something has come out of it.

    I probably haven’t commented as much as I should have you’ll be missed.

  4. Thanks Ed, I’m thinking of more of a change in direction than anything else…I’ll be updating the blog over at the Cosecha site fairly regularly…suitably random topics of course.
