While I believe the web is a tremendous resource, just look- it got you here! I also know what is bunk.
My one recomendation to you is to stick to magazines and industry experts. How do you know who is an industry expert? Well...you learn with time. There are many hobbyists posing as experts. Stick with those you have trusted in the past. Find somebody who has recommended something you like and keep going back to them.
I also want to remind you that I will be at the North Shore Wine Festival in Vernon Hills, Illinois next Sunday, May 3rd. We will be broadcasting from 2p-3pm. Thanks to WKRS for having us!!!
