I asked Amy Lillard at la gramiere about how to get a hold of some of her wine (reading her blog has whetted my interest), and she mentioned that
...We're hoping to get our wine imported into the States. I've had a couple of people contact me about it, just waiting until it's ready to get samples out.
Being curious, I asked her about the source of those contacts, to which Amy replied:
The contacts were, in fact, a direct result of blogging. One was a serious inquiry, wanting to come and taste, the other was an email of encouragement from an importer. Funny how blogging can open doors huh?
Here's a question for any winery bloggers reading this post: How has blogging helped (or hurt) your winery? Enquiring minds want to know! Please add your experiences to the comments.
