Back in the Saddle Again

Chatting with Willamette Valley Legends at the Wine Writers Education Tour in 2019



It’s been over two and a half years and I’m finally back in the saddle again.  Next week I’m going to not one, but two conferences — the Wine Writer’s Education Tour (WWET) and Hospice du Rhône’s flagship event in Paso Robles, California.



Back in the Saddle Again

A View of Paso Robles



And I couldn’t be more excited.  The WWET is a series of conferences for wine writers with a deep dive into wine regions.  The agenda in Paso Robles looks packed and I’m excited to share it with you. I’ve been to Napa and Oregon.  It’s invitation only, a deep dive into the region and there is a lot of interaction with the people that make the region special.


Hospice du Rhöne gathers an international community to celebrate Rhône wines and winemakers with more than 120 producers and seminars.


I’m ready.  So, in a little over a week, look for more winemaker stories, wine tastings, terroir, varieties, trends and what’s developing in the region. It’s so exciting to be back in the saddle again.
