Just a teaser here.....but in less than 2 weeks, my wife and I will be wending our way up to the northern part of the the land of the "King of the Red Wine Grapes"---Napa.  Of course, NO wine trip would be complete without first stopping in Paso Robles.....the finally recognized apex (IMO) of creative winemakng..... to barrel taste a nice assortment of 09's with my favorite winemakers.  Then....onwards for a 6 day trip of swirling, sniffing, and sipping at some of California's most renown (Napa and Sonoma) wineries.  Eight days of sipping incredible wines, eating at incredible restaurants (such as Il Cortile in Paso Robles), and meeting with wonderful winemakers....
Life is good.

  1. One of my favorites in Napa is Swanson. It's a bit pricey, but with industry break, it's worth every penny. Looking forward to dining together while you are in Paso.
