  • Freemark Abbey was actually quite good back in the late '60s, all through the '70s and into the '80s.

  • I quite enjoy the Snooth Virtual Tastings.  It's been a while since I joined in the live event, because (I can't believe a retired person has this problem.) of schedule conflicts.  Even when I don't participate in the live event, I make time to view the archived recording.So, I was pleased to see that I had no conflict for the next VT--La Crema ...
