Another weekend here in Houston and I am hoping to get out on a ride this morning, my first group ride in a very long time. There is no Little League game today and my wife left yesterday on a trip to Spain, Mallorca, to be precise. On a cycling trip. Without me. So while I really have no room to complain, I am feeling a tad bit bitter this Saturday morning. So before I go and take it out on a few unsuspecting group ride participants, here are a couple of reminders for you:
- If you have not already done so, you need to enter Rodney Strong’s Master Blender Sweepstakes. I was out in Sonoma a few weeks ago where I experienced what the two winners will experience and it is unlike any visit to Wine Country. Details about my trip can be found HERE.
- • Since last week, the number of rosés for “The Second Annual Largest Blind Tasting of American True Rosé in the World” (or something like that) has doubled–we are now up to almost 40. Add to that the wines from last year, and the total eclipses 50. 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. Even though the total is now up to more than four dozen, if you would like to either submit a wine or participate in the tasting, please contact me. The original date for the tasting was supposed to be this weekend, but a number of producers suggested a later date as their wines had not yet been released. I am now looking at a couple of dates in May for the tasting.
Have a Safe Saturday!
