Wine Geek USA postcard #1

Postcard 1

Hi Winos!

Just ‘cos I’m on my holidays it doesn’t mean I don’t care about you lot… a week in and so much has happened! Vegas was just plain awesome… or MENTAL as I’ve described it elsewhere. I played my first face-to-face poker event … and won!! $375 meant we ate and drank well that night… I’ve got a better poker face than a mirror face I tell you!


The Fish got addicted to the slot machines and became a pool-fiend; we had such a laugh in Buellton and enjoyed an amazing four days in Napa. It’s been pretty wild and I just love the Nevada and California folk… we should all be so polite!


We’ve arrived in Healdsburg, Sonoma and have some amazing wine tastings lined up over the next few days: Kistler. Red Car, Wind Gap. Ridge, Joseph Swan, Porter Creek… I can’t wait to see and taste what’s in front of us.

Here’s a selection of posts so far; there will be one on the fantastic (and I really mean that!) Cabs of Napa in a day or so. Oh and I met the amazing Cathy Corison – a real Wine Geek moment! If you don’t know who she is then keep an eye out for the Napa post… she even agreed to have her photo taken with me!!!!


A tasting at Au Bon Climat – my favourite Californian winemaker didn’t let me down!


This week’s #newwinethisweek had to be Californian Chardonnay… give it another go, you won’t be disappointed!


Have you seen the film Sideways? I love it, and we lived and breathed it for 24 hours in Buellton… And we didn’t drink any f*cking Merlot!


The boring stuff
