I recently returned from the Virginia Wine Summit in Richmond, and yep, I am pretty excited about the wine. It’s not just local, it’s really good. The Summit is a well organized event promoting Virginia, its wines, and its wine regions. For the event, I was asked to participate on a panel discussion about "Dark Horse" grape varieties. The opportunity was exciting because it deals with one of the most important issues in the American wine industry today: the necessity to move beyond... Full Post >

This past May I took one of my bi-annual trips to California. I love California -- the wine, food, natural beauty and diverse culture is an ever-beckoning call to visit.

However, all of the trips I have taken in the past were group oriented, and everything needed to be on a tight schedule, and, most importantly, I had no choice over which wineries I... Full Post >
