As I mentioned last week, the warm weather was forecast to return this past week, and boy did it! With temperatures approaching 80° just about every day, I really can’t say that I have been disliking this year’s Houston “winter.” As I write, it is a chilly 66° heading up to 74° this afternoon—so I am off on a ride here shortly….
Before I go, here are today’s reminders:
- The deadline for the latest Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC30) is quickly approaching! There are now just ten days to enter, as January 24th is the deadline. All the details can be found HERE.
- If you are in Austin (January 24) or Dallas (January 26), you really should consider attending Pinot in the City, which brings together 60 wineries from the Willamette Valley for what seems like will be an outstanding event. Why they are not coming to Houston, Texas’ largest city, is a really good question.
- I would be attending the aforementioned, but I will be in Sacramento that week at the 2017 Unified Wine & Grape Symposium, where I will be on a panel called “Beyond the Tasting Room: Marketing Your Wines Today.” If you will also be at the Symposium, I would love to say hi!
- It looks like I will also be in New York for “Italian Week” with the Italian Trade Commission the second week of February. Again, if you will be there too, it would be great to meet up.
Have a Happy (and hopefully warm) Saturday!
