The heat as come to South Texas a little early this year, apparently. Since I returned from chilly Napa, California, the daytime temps have been solidly in the 90s with humidity to match. Thus, I have not been on my bike all that much, but that changes in a few minutes as I head out for a ride as I need to get into some kind of shape for late July (see the first reminder). Other than that, this weekend will involve cataloguing all the rosé I have on hand and trying to get them all cold for next weekend’s blind tasting (see the second reminder).
- I decided this week, I am going to return to my former summer “job” as I will be leading a couple of bike trips in France again this summer. The two trips: The Brittany Coast (July 29-August 4) and Northern Burgundy (August 5-11). I am working out some details including a potential discount for any of my readers who might want to come along. The riding is not difficult and I firmly believe there is no better way to see France. Send me an email (jeff (at) thedrunkencyclist (dot) com) if you would like more details.
- 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 for the tasting, please contact me (but please do so soon as there are only one week remaining). The tasting will be June 9th.
Have a Safe Saturday!
