I went to California last week to attend a Web 2.0 conference (user generated content and tagging etc.). The conference was good, but it was what I did the rest of the week that made the trip really worthwhile. As I mentioned yesterday, I met with several high profile wine companies out in San Francisco. We're still ironing out some of the details, but I hope to be able to talk about these soon.
I was lucky enough to get up to Napa and Sonoma over the weekend to visit some wineries and continue to spread the word about Snooth. I met with people, and tasted wines, from Joseph Phelps (Napa), Mondavi (Napa), Luna (Napa), Baldacci (Napa), Corda (Marin), Rosenblum (Sonoma), Thumbprint (Sonoma) amongst others.
Napa County produces some of the finest wines in the world, but the town was too large to be picturesque. However, Sonoma town and Healdsburg really stood out. Both are tiny (touristy) picture perfect towns, and well worth the visit.
Finally, for today, from California, although I sadly didn't have the opportunity to meet with them this time, K&L Wine Merchants have just started working with us. K&L have a great name in the industry and we're excited to be featuring their products.
