Happy Thanksgiving!

We hope your holiday will be peaceful, restful and reflective. We're working on some significant articles for next week, but will take today for the holiday. Because of that, this issue concentrates on some behind-the-scenes work we've been doing as well as News Fetch.

New Features


A lot of readers, especially the legion of new subscribers, have asked for previous issues of the email editions. It took us a bit, but all of the previous email editions are now online and accessible here. The editions are searchable from that page. The archive link is at the top of every email edition and at the top right corner of WineIndustryInsight.Com.


It’s vital to realize that not every story on WineIndustryInsight.Com site is included in the email editions. Doing that would make emails way, way too long. If you want to avoid missing items of interest, you’ll want to check in online periodically. All content on WineIndustryInsight.Com is also searchable via the box at the top right corner of the page.


The “unsubscribe” function has long been at the top of each email edition, but a lot of you forward your edition to others (and that is totally fine with me). For those who receive forwarded email editions and want their own, we’ve added a subscribe function just below the unsubscribe link.

I’m happy to manually enter new addresses, but the subscribe link allows people to set their own preferences on how they want to receive it.


WineIndustryInsight.Com now has a new section called “Digital Tech” which is aimed at aggregating news about software, social networking, smart phone apps and other technologies separate from those used directly in the wine production and grape growing processes. Please let me know of this serves your needs. Please send news if you have appropriate items.
