Taj is currently on the road with her 3-month wine blogging tour of the Western United States. Begun on March 1st, 2006, she's visiting wine hotspots in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Oregon and Washington, tasting wines and meeting winemakers. Her blog, “The Cork and Demon,” is updated at least three times a week with photos, stories and interviews. It's a one-of-a-kind project, intended to find the people who are still passionate about what they do, which often leads this blogger off the beaten path and into the tasting rooms of the smaller producers.
