Saturday Reminders—4/14/18

By the time this is published, I will likely be in Verona, Italy attending VinItaly, the premier showcase for Italian wines. What does that mean? Well, I am not entirely sure as I have never been. I will be sure to recount my experiences in the weeks to come. Until then, here are a few reminders:

  • If you have not already done so, you need to enter Rodney Strong’s Master Blender Sweepstakes. I just returned from Sonoma after experiencing what the two winners will experience and it is unlike any visit to Wine Country. Details about my trip can be found HERE.
  • I have received several rosés for the “The Second Annual Largest Blind Tasting of American True Rosé in the World” (or something like that). True Rosés are pink wines that are not saignée, wines that are intentionally made to be rosé from the start. They are not a by-product of red wine production. I have received more than a dozen already, with several more on the way. If you would like to either submit a wine or participate in the tasting, please contact me. The date for the tasting, which will include several wines that were released last year, is April 20th (a date which some people seem to find amusing). That date, though, might need to be pushed back as I may have bitten off a bit too much this month.

    This year’s lineup (so far).

Have a Safe 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.
