» March Events for Wine Lovers
By Gregory Dal Piaz
Whether your staying local or traveling abroad, here are some great travel ideas for Spring Break!
Gregory Dal Piaz,
Here's to GDP, who does for New World wines what Gandhi did for outcaste Indians. I live in a very green land which is a wine desert : alcohol is prohibited.... by law. So it needs a phone call to procure a case of wine (Diplo plonk, of course) delivered within the hour by your ever-obliging bootlegger, these days @ about $160 the dozen. It's much more cost-effective to stick to Scotch & Vodders for the sundown haze, now about $400 the doz. My point is, I've tasted the best wines of Euroland at the very chateaux & bodegas & cantinas, and there's nothing to beat that. HOWEVER, thanks to GDP, I do want to make a last trip to the New World to sample the product thereof. CHEERS !!!

Soooo wishing I could be there!!! I love New York and miss it so much! And this promises to be a wild party! Maybe next year! Everyone have a great time and post lots of Pics. And GDP...I was going to say behave yourself, but where's the fun in that?! Cheers to you and Snooth for putting this event on. Cheers to many more!

If you're in the mood for Pinot Noir, head to the charming town of Campbell, CA (in the Silicon Valley) on Sunday, March 24 for "Pinot Paradise," a celebration of all the vintners who make Pinot Noir from the Santa Cruz Mountains. It's a rare chance to get all 30 plus wineries who make SCMtns Pinot in the same room, accompanied by lots of great food from local restaurants. It's at Villa Ragusa in Campbell. Taste Pinots from Alfaro, Big Basin Vineyards, Burrell School, House Family, Mount Eden, Thomas Fogarty and Windy Oaks, to name a few. It's positively a Pinotmersion! :>
