There are many perks about wine writing. Voluminous amounts of wine samples, winemaker dinners, trade tastings, wine junkets (with each wine region showing off their winemaking and culinary skills to the max.)
The downside? See above. Drinking your meals takes a toll, my friend. With all vast amounts of wine and food wine writers are compelled to consume in the name of journalistic duty (yes, it is a hard job, but I take my responsibility to you, dear reader, very seriously) there tends to be a perpetual issue about weight gain. Frumpy and dumpy are sooo not sexy. To banish that chow-line blubber, winemaker Jayson Woodbridge of Layer Cake has created a workout video perfect for any wino. (Or a wino-in-training.)
