A week in Northern Italy did not kill me. Nothing like visiting 10 producers in two days, staying up to 2:30 for a virtual tasting the day before, after visiting 4 wineries, and then following it up with a tasting of over 30 Teroldegos not once, but twice! Actually the first night I was hijacked and went to dinner to drink TrentoDoc, the local bubbly so not all was lost.
Maybe I'll have some pictures soon, tasting notes on wines you can't buy to follow shortly there after.
Great to be back.

was thinking a lot of snooth members in the Bay Area might want to attend The Family Winemakers of California tasting at Fort Mason in San Francisco this weekend.
They can get in for free if they volunteer.
They are still looking for volunteers for Monday. This would give them the opportunity to try a lot(too many) wines on Sunday, no charge.
There seems to be less small guys than in years past. But still a lot good to try there.
Info on volunteering and a ridiculously long list of attending wineries at the website.

Hey: we are always glad you're back (and BTW we may meet soon), though that will become more certain over the next 4 weeks. Just don't beat up on me like you do GregT...

I thought you went hiking in the ALPS (being so close) and got lost.
Glad you are back.
