Almost 800 miles and two events and I am home just in time to share the high points with you! I poured at the Seattle Wine and Food Experience (#SWFE) and attended the Oregon Wine Symposium (#OWS16), both for Locati Cellars. So many neat people and good information.
Oh, we had a fun party at the Marcus Whitman Hotel to celebrate our 4th Anniversary here along with Tero Estates, Lodmell Cellars and Mansion Creek Cellars while I was gone. It was interesting to plan the food and wines to pour knowing I wouldn’t be here to participate. We had Cugini’s Salami with Locati Sangiovese, Italian cheeses, marinated olives and mushrooms with fruit and bread to pair with our Reed Pinot Grigio, Barbera and Primitivo. It is wonderful to have a terrific staff and supportive owner to pick up the slack and make it happen. Might have to work on their photography to ensure I have something to share with you in the future.
There is a quieter week to come; good thing as I think I have a cold trying to take me down. Cheers!
