Red Thread™

stories about wine, the ‘red thread’ that binds us all…

L.M. Archer writes about wine, the 'red thread' that binds us all.

Welcome to Red Thread™, a place for stories about wine, the ‘red thread’ that binds us all.

Formerly titled The Hedonistic Taster , the Red Thread™  provides a forum to share my impressions of wine samples that I receive for editorial consideration.

It’s also a way to codify my work on Instagram. Over the past ten years, my voice has evolved to include visual storytelling through photography. (You can find links to my award-winning images here.) I find that Instagram supports my visual storytelling better than any other social media platform.

However, like any social media platform, content can disappear overnight. Hence my desire to capture it on my own site. Enjoy!
