The only info I could really get was a bio on the author who seems to be a wine enthusiast with only a few years part-time experience in the wine trade.

So my questions are:

1) Does anyone here subscribe to Jeb's report and is it reliable?

2) Is it common for people to set up subscription sites with relatively little experience?


Jon,

While I am not a subscriber, I have been reading Jeb's notes and commentaries for many years elswhere on the web. He knows what he is talking about. His palate preferences are a little different than mine, but he's not some newbie trying to make a quick buck.

That being said, though, for my money I'd be far more likely to subscribe to John Livingstone-Learmonth's DrinkRhone site than Jeb Dunnick's but that's just my preference. As it is, I subscribe to neither and just buy JLL's books :D
