Greetings from New York!
I always enjoy the time I spend in New York City. Because I grew up in Manhattan, and now have a daughter living in Brooklyn, I look for every excuse to come back and visit old landmarks and discover new ventures.
Vino 2009, an exposé of Italian Wine in America, was my ticket to NYC this week. Imagine, three days of seminars and presentations, culminating in The Grand Tasting--an event which, as its name promises, is quite grand. This six hour tasting showcases over two hundred Italian wine producers!!
I'll have the rest of the weekend to relax and attempt to stay warm before embarking on another, wonderful vino adventure.
On Monday, Blue Lifestyle (including yours truly) will be playing host to the Taste Walla Walla event at Thalassa Restaurant. This tasting will offer a selection of wines from the Walla Walla appelation, a lesser-known yet extremely successful region in Southeastern Washington. Consumers can purchase tickets through the Walla Walla Website.
Hope to see you there!
