I have a busy few hours ahead of me, so this will need to be brief. It is fairly early in the morning here in Houston, and I am ready to head out for a quick 20 mile bike ride. Then we are off to Sebastian’s “championship” baseball game, which I hope does not go into extra innings since I need to catch a flight to California shortly after the time the game should end. Oh, and I need to pack. Yeah, nothing going on. As I head out for my ride, here are a couple of reminders:
- 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.
- The number of wines for “The Largest Blind Tasting of American True Rosés Ever” has grown to over 60 with a few more on the way. 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 five dozen, if you would like to either submit a wine or participate in the tasting, please contact me. The tasting will be June 9th, so if you are in Houston and would like to partake (it will be a “formal tasting” that will likely take close to three hours and spitting will be required), let me know!
Have a Safe Saturday!
