Pinot Days 2014 Report

Pinot Days in San Francisco brings together close to 100 wineries from California and a few from Oregon. Having 100 wineries all working with the same grape varietal is fascinating and challenging as you decide: Which wineries to try; How to compare them; What story to look for.

The Country’s Most Exclusive Whisky Show

Recently I spent 24 hours in Las Vegas at the Universal Whisky Experience. I was invited down by the CEO of the event, Mahesh Patel, on an exploratory mission to check it out in the hopes that I’d be sufficiently enticed to invite our fine Wingtip members to join me at the event next year.

With that disclosure out of the way, I must say that enticed, I was.

Donkey & Goat Tasting (Wine, Not Game)

Walking into the winery with barrels stacked up both sides of the walls, there were tables for pouring with guests two and three deep, a narrow channel in between was a slow passage from the front to the back lot where a band and a food truck waited. I become uncomfortable in crowds and stood with my back to a wall and enjoyed my wine. As I was raising my glass, an eight-year-old girl walked past raising an ice cream cone. I thought it unusual for a child to be there until I went to the back lot where families were sitting in the sun at picnic tables, with children playing bocce ball, a band in the background, a food truck, and, of course, an ice cream stand. The philosophy of the winemakers was evident there: They were not making cocktail wines for adult parties, but rather, wine to enjoy with food and family, all together in a fun environment.
