Herald's wine columnist debuts today

A toast to our newest columnist, wine enthusiast Jim Rawe. We introduced his column, “Off the Vine,” on today’s Taste cover and here online.

Jim, a local attorney who has a practice of one here in Bradenton, is an astute student of all things wine. He says his wine cellar is home to hundreds of bottles of fine wine, varying from the affordable to -– well, luxurious. He hopes to someday turn his hobby into a full-time career, but for now, he’s still practicing family law.

We hope you enjoy -– send your thoughts. To reach Jim, email him at, or send me your comments here or to

Another cool result from adding “Off the Vine": our Down Home Cooking star, Diann Greene, will be our local centerpiece on Taste most weeks. We have heard from many of you who are enjoying her cooking insights, and we think you’ll love the bigger splash.

Stay tuned for a blog from each of our Taste experts soon on
