The Joy of Good Wines

Yesterday was the annual tourism conference I put on, and despite unseasonal weather (forcing lunch inside and making the lakeside venue a smidge less attractive) it brought out over 120 people.  This year’s event ended with a Suisun Valley wine tasting, courtesy of a friend of my boss who grows grapes down there.  He convinced thirteen labels to provide their best wines, including Forlorn Hope, Vezer (who let us taste a La Salette Zinfandel which sold for $30,000 in a recent auction) and many others.  As one of the pourers, I was told I got to take home the open bottles, and didn’t quite realize the volume of what that meant.  So last night we enjoyed a really fine Petite Verdot and a Suisun Zinfandel.  I have another 7 bottles to drink, including a couple of nice whites.

Anyone wanna join me?
