Enjoying life one sip of wine at a time..

Welcome to my wine blog. My name is Casey and I have been involved in the world of wine for nearly 16 years. 2019 marks the 9 year anniversary of the Travelling Corkscrew Blog – that’s 9 years of having the best excuse to drink wine because ‘it’s all for the blog’!

The whole idea behind this blog is to build a community of wine lovers – I want to share my experiences in the wine world with you all over a glass of wine online and who knows, maybe we’ll all learn something new. Make sure to check out:

Please feel free to browse around, you can find out more about me here and don’t be shy about dropping me a line to say hi or to tell me about your latest wine find.
