Saturday Reminders–9/24/16

I am sitting at the airport here in Houston, waiting for my flight to Frankfurt and then on to Nice, in the South of France. That will be followed by a 45 minute drive along the coast to the quaint town of Saint-Raphaël. So, if you are reading this around the time it was published today, I will likely be in that car, anxiously hoping to get to my hotel where I can take a nap. Some think that it is a bad idea to nap once hitting Europe, but I know I will not sleep on either plane nor in the car–I never do.

So shed a tear for me.


Here are my reminders for the day.

  1. AList_2016_LogoAs I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, the Oregon Wine is once again sponsoring the Oregon Wine A-List Awards. They are looking for restaurants across the globe that have stellar representations of Oregon wines on their wine lists. Do you have any in your corner of the world? If so, you should provide the Board with all the details so they can spread the word! All the details can be found HERE.
  2. Yesterday, published another wine writer round-up (or something like that), and once again thought it wise to include me. Before any of you start questioning their collective wisdom, I have met a few of the people over there and they do seem to be rather bright. Yeah. I can’t figure it out either.

Have a great weekend everyone!


About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    Our collective wisdom is pretty good. Next time we are all together, we should all bring one of the well-aged wines we mention… what a party, right? Cheers & safe travels!

  4. Hope your hotel in St-Raphael is up on the hill. Great views of the Med from up there! Take a short nap, then carry on with your day if you are staying in Europe for any longer than 5 days so you can get on their schedule as quickly as possible. That was what I did on my once yearly treks to France. Bon voyage!
