Who is this guy?
My name is Ken Ohr and I like wine. While that alone doesn’t mean you should read Sips, it’s how I got started writing about it. In fact, I like wine so much that I launched a company, created a national media brand and spent close to ten years immersed in wine and all that surrounds it. But I don’t collect wine and I don’t sell it. I’m like most of you – fascinated by the never ending variety, the opportunity for continuos discovery and the way that wine brings us together.
The Wine Experience was the only national radio show about wine, running on stations around the country for over ten years and WineExperience.com was a unique, fully independent website about wine as an everyday, fun, “unsnooty” part of life. Life and the times can change so I have been away from any writing for about five years, but not away from wine as an everyday part of who I am.
So I decided it’s time to get back at it with “Sips of The Wine Experience.” Through this blog I’ll share some thoughts on wine styles, varieties, tasting, buying, travel and enjoying that are personal and, hopefully, reasonably entertaining.
And you are welcome to journey along. Let’s Pop the Cork!
