In my short time as a member and emerging fan of Snooth, I have read the articles you have written and have increased my knowledge and understanding of wine and it's History.
I hope all the others who frequent Snooth recognize and appreciate your in-depth contributions.
May I also comment on what a wonderful job you have by getting to taste some of the wines that are outstanding from the many awesome grape regions of the world. I'm sure you feel appreciative about your ability through Snooth to taste and comment on wines that only some of us can dream about. Thanks for passing notes to us on those wines.
In 1974 my wife purchased a bottle of 1966 Chateau Lafite Rothchild for my birthday. I opened it and tasted it with friends..................I have to this day no words available to describe the taste, it was something you can only experience.
I am fortunate by living in the Pacific Northwest and am but a stones throw from most of the fine Washington State winery's and the Oregon vinyards too. I plan to take them in one at a time with short mini vacations.
Again I applaud you for your knowledge and the way you present it to all of us using your eloquent descriptions.
Thank you Gregory,
The Great Pacific Northwest
Bravo Gregory Dal-Piaz

Well spoken, James, and though Greg has been the heart and soul of the public portion of Snooth, he is perhaps not acknowledged as much as he should be. Good for you for doing it.

Greg's currently sunning himself and taking a well deserved break in the Carribbean - I'll make sure he sees your kind words though.

Thank you all for your kind words!
I am very fortunate to have this job and enjoy many aspects of it, the wine tasting, the conection with the industry, but no facet is more satisfying than connecting with our members.
Thanks Lefty for letting me know. It means so very much.
