Winerabble 2020 year in review


Wow, what a year?! I know WE needed copious amounts of wine to get through 2020. How about you? With the many challenges this year, my mission has been to share with you as many wines and the stories behind the skilled winemakers as possible. Since the pandemic began, wineries (and other small businesses) desparately need your support!


If you can, please support them by buying their wines!


What libations helped you through 2020?!? We’d love to include them in our 2021 year in review!
