Welcome to The Wellesley Wine Press - A consumer's view on finding, enjoying, and sharing great wines at great prices.
My name is Robert Dwyer. I am a value minded wine lover living in Wellesley, Massachusetts- a suburb about 15 miles west of Boston. I first became interested in wine around the year 2000, and my interest in the subject has gradually built since then. The past 4 companies I've worked for have been based in San Jose, California so I've been fortunate to visit Napa and Sonoma wine country while on work trips. I have been blogging since 2003 and in 2008 I started The Wellesley Wine Press to focus exclusively on wine.
I carry a Wine & Spirit Education Trust Level 2 Intermediate Certificate in Wine and Spirits and I've trained as a mixologist.
I write this blog to help others enjoy wine more while spending less money. For me, it's all about value. I frequently perform reviews of wine accessories and wine retailers and I try to pass along useful information about compelling wine deals. Occasionally, the deals are local, but for the most part I hope the content is relevant and interesting to anyone interested in wine. I tend to think and write with a consumerist mentality.
I typically post new entries 2 to 3 times a week.
Thanks for stopping in.
