Vieilles Vignes



 In attempt to draw in new members, The Wine Writer's Association has decided to recognize the geezer element by creating a new category of wine writers – those folks who have been writing about wine for at least 35 years. Membership is open to any writer who has done paid writing about wine since at least 1973 (and rolling forward each year, so that in 2009 the beginning date must be 1974, etc.) -- and is still writing. This acclaim grants to the members the right to add VV after their name: Vieilles Vignes. The annual membership fee has been established as equivalent to one's first paid invoice for wine writing, way back in the time when….


Topics to be discussed at upcoming meetings include health insurance, rocker catalogues, pension plans, nutritional benefits of alcohol, time sharing, how to open the new twist tops, offshore properties, the wandering aspects of wine, assisted-living wine junkets, and newer grape varieties such as the Pinot More..


Wine geezers unite!
