Many of the major food and wine publications are located in L.A. or New York City, right? Wrong. One prominent magazine and trade show is based right here in Colorado.
Under the headline, "Wine Country Network Helps Put City on Wine Map," Denver Daily News Reporter Joshua Wolpe writes:
"Of the many consequences felt around the country and the world on Sept. 11, 2001, the emergence of Denver to the international wine scene was an extremely unlikely one.?
"But it was shortly after that day that Christopher and Darcy Davies began to think about relocating from New York City.
"The Davies also wanted a different city to raise their children in and a better location between the two coasts to do business.
"The Davies started their business, Wine Country Network, Inc. (WCN), in New York in 2002 and moved to Colorado in September 2003.
"'Colorado is a great place to be positioned between New York and California,' Christopher said. 'It?s the best move we could have made.'
"WCN is a multi-platform media and event company that publishes the nationally distributed 'Wine Country International Magazine,' produces 'Travel, Wine and Cuisine' radio and several International wine festivals. WCN has also been appointed exclusive worldwide sales and marketing agent for Wine Trails GPS, which is custom software designed for enhancing touring in wine countries."
