I'm looking for a few great wine lovers...

I know the last few years have been challenging. What I've missed most of all is the sense of community we had when we would gather to taste and talk about wines.

So, I'm starting small and inviting those folks who have been so supportive of my efforts over time.

Our first class back on the Bay is going to be a comparison of some delicious wines from all over the world. It's your chance to taste varieties from different regions - side-by-side - and decide for yourself where your favorite wines may come from.

We're limiting the size of the class in order to create and intimate place where you are free to discuss, agree or disagree, or just learn a bit more about wines from all over the world.

We'll be meeting Wednesday, November 9th, at 7 PM at The Savory Palette in Morro Bay. 

Hope you'll join us! Here's the link to purchase tickets for the class:

A Tale of Three Wines...


The Goddess of Wine and JD started off Tuesday at their home-away-from-home, the Savory Palette in Morro Bay. Our little group of "Paletteers" tries to meet every Tuesday afternoon to catch up on the week's events, trials, and tribulations, while supporting our local wine bar. 

I found this modest 2017 Vin de Pays, a blend of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot from Triennes, a project from two Burgundians, Jacques Seysses, founder of Domaine Dujac, and Aubert de Villaine, joined by their Parisian friend, Michel Macaux. They looked for land in the south of France, and in 1989, found the Domaine du Logis de Nans in the Var, north-east of Marseille.

The wine was deep purple in color; the nose delightfully rich in baking spices and red fruit. We paired it with an artfully made cheese plate, but had to leave earlier than usual, so we put a cork in the bottle and took it home. The tasting notes from the winery suggest that this could be aged another 10 - 15 years. Hmm...not so much, but very tasty now.
