Saturday Reminders—6/10/17

I am ramping up for my first group ride in a while, so I do not have a ton of time, but before I go, here are a few reminders:

  • Today is the day! It is National Rosé Day and to celebrate, I am hosting the “World’s Largest Blind Tasting of American True Rosés (and two saignées)” today at 3:00 at my humble abode. Right now, I have 29 (yes 29) rosés lined up and on ice (well, they are not on ice yet…). There is still some room at the table for one or two more, so if you are in Houston and would like to join in, send me an email.
  • The deadline for the next Monthly Wine Writing Challenge (#MWWC33) was this past Monday, June 5th, but as there were only a handful of entries, I decided to extend the deadline another week, thus you have until Monday (or even until early Tuesday when I post the list) to get in your entry! The theme this go around, provided by last month’s winner Wining with Mel, is Once Upon a Time. All the details can be found HERE.
  • Even though the ride to Austin is over, you can still contribute! I originally had hoped to raise $500, but as of this morning, I am hovering just under $1000. If all of you give just a few bucks, it will push me into the four digits! Every dollar counts!

  • Last. There is still time to enter the Rodney Strong Master Blender Sweepstakes! You would certainly be remiss if you neglected to do so. The entry form is HERE and my write-up about the Sweepstakes can be found HERE.

Have a Happy Saturday!


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.
