This is the homepage for wine writer, Neal Martin's, "Diary of a Wine Writer". The site is still under construction but now includes the original "blog" that was written between 2003 and 2006 on the original website before joining Robert Parker's website www.erobertparker.com (eRP).
The entries have been "remastered" in order to make it more literate, make more sense, eradicate spelling mistakes and add a couple more jokes. There is a hiatus of three years before the diary makes a phoenix-like resurrection in May 2009, which forms Book Two. Hopefully the writing has improved (a bit) and the photos are a less blurred and out of focus.

My entire wine-related content continues to be exclusively published on eRP, including since March 2007, over 500 original articles, including my monthly musical recommendations. There are presently over 14,000 Wine-Journal tasting notes on the fully-searchable database, notwithstanding thousands more from my colleagues. Links to most recent articles can be found in the right-hand column, though necessitate subscription to eRP, a noble act that could only enhance your life. In the future, I may include teasers for the articles , but for those who misguidedly assumed that my style would inevitably be watered down should click here for enlightenment.
Over the next few weeks, I will be adding some social media tools, Twitter etc. in order to make this site more interactive and the plan is to move to a more conventional blogging format once I have figured out the best way to do it. In the meantime, I have attached a neat little search function to help you navigate the site. Just insert the words of phrases in the box on the left hand side.
