Scholarship Recipient: Matt McGinnis
Matt McGinnis wants to know What You Are Drinking! Writing for the last 5 years, he continually strives to improve the quality of his blog and is excited to be joining us in the Finger Lakes for the Wine Blogger’s Conference. His blog, What Are You Drinking, explores the everyday adventures of life, paired with delicious drinks. Matt likes to dive in to the people along with the drinks, and spends a great deal of time interviewing brewers, distillers, and wine makers to share with his readers.
Matt is also a Certified Sommelier, and often judges beverage competitions. Recognized as a Top 10 Food Blogger in 2013 and 2014 by the Austin Chronicle, we are lucky to have Matt join us in the Finger Lakes! As a self-employed consultant (hrmm sounds familiar), he is excited to be selected as the Rodney Strong Vineyards Wine Blogger Scholarship winner of 2015, which will enabled him to join us for the Wine Bloggers Conference.
A prolific writer & contributor to several online publications, Matt gets around town and has really made a name for himself over the last 280 blog posts (5 years). I look forward to reading more and meeting him in person in August!
Please stop by and say hi to Matt!
