|The view at Marimar|
Then there was the annual open house at Margerum, with a visit to neighboring Curtis, and finishing up with another relaxing taste at Tastes of the Valleys in Solvang.
WineDiscoveries.net in Studio City over the last 8 weeks.
And I'm at least 2 posts behind for Grape of the Night at the Valencia Wine Company, and I'm going to miss the October 'holiday favorites' get together on October 4th. (For which Eve keeps saying that I picked the subject. Don't actually remember doing that - I made some suggestions, but I suspect Eve actually made the decision.)
And don't even get me started about the North Berkeley Imports' portfolio tasting at Lucques on the same day as the Tasting Panel San Francisco Wine Competition winners at Waterloo & City.
And how I attended a special Wine Law class at LearnAboutWine. Fascinating!
And how I taught a Wine 101 class (in record-breaking heat) to a group of WineShop At Home Consultants to help them be better educators at their in-home tastings.
And the delightful - and steamy (did I mention heat?) - evening we had with I'll Drink to That at Nicola's Kitchen featuring Mike Rubino of D'Anbino Cellars.
WSET Intermediate Certification training at The Cellar/All Corked Up on October 3rd.
That pretty much brings us up to date, and you can understand why I'm behind! Gotta go study!
It's "Sparkling, Prosecco and Champagne" on Nov 8 and "Re-Gifting" (I hope your faves and not the worse wines you got) on Dec. 6. The group voted (including you) on the themes. But, yes, I have no (blond) clue now who suggested what Goddess! I just hope to see you now that I'm sending you the dates in advance - and see you tomorrow at WSET!
Since you mentioned that Shai Cellars is one of your friends, I was surprised that you didn't stop by the facility where Shawn makes his wine...Terravant Wine Co. in Buellton, CA. There is even a Tapas Bar upstairs overlooking the production area and during harvest you can enjoy the fantastic aromas of fermenting grapes...my favorite time of the year! Maybe the next trip...Cheers!
I would love to stop at Terravant some day soon, but who are you, Anonymous? Perhaps in the future, you'll sign your name!
