A FAREWELL TOAST: After 20 years, the Star’s wine columnist is retiring

  • Comments

March 14, 2001, marked the debut of the “Uncorked” wine column in the Anniston Star. As the 20th anniversary approaches, it seems a fitting time to step back from a job so loved that it never seemed to be a job at all. But fear not, gentle readers, you may still see my name in the food and features pages of the Star from time to time.

Looking back to those early years, it is rather incredible that the only place to purchase anything approximating fine wine back then was the Amoco service station in downtown Anniston, owned by Bill Collins.
