About Dregs Report

Dregs Report is a collaborative celebration of April Fools Day wine-style, by 40 bloggers and writers. Most of us have never met; the lion’s share twitter; and we all know our way around an email box. This project was also completed without a single conference call, let alone meeting. It’s a labor of love, in the name of laughter. Most important of all, we know our way around a bottle or two of wine. Wine’s the glue, and for the next two weeks we’ll be using this site to stick it to the wine scene. (With all due respect, of course, to Matt Drudge, the world’s premier wine writer, whose site, Drudge Report we mimic here.) Click, read/watch, laugh, enjoy, repeat! And please share with like-minded wine-loving friends and colleagues.

“Dregs Exclusives” [except where noted] were written by W. R. Tish (Wine For All); graphics by Katie Pizzuto (Gonzo Gastronomy); coding by Dale Cruse (Drinks Are On Me).
