Innovation day

I’m headed to the 3rd Annual Innovation Day Indy at Victory Field, Indianapolis, IN sponsored by Oracle. I will be the keynote speaker (talking about wine, not software) and will also be hosting a happy hour at the end of the day. Stop by and say hi if you are in Indianapolis. Cheers!

6 for $66

Thanks to 3rd Corner Wine Shop & Bistro for sponsoring last night’s 6 for $66 class at MiraCosta College. It was a wonderful success and all attendees had a fantastic evening. Register NOW for the next MiraCosta wine appreciation class on Aug 18 hosted by KutaSomm.

Temecula Valley

Wine tasting in beautiful Temecula Valley is a wonderful experience. Numerous wineries are spread throughout the valley. The best varietals to investigate are Spanish and Italian varietals, including Tempranillo, Sangiovese, and Barbera. Syrah, a Rhone-style grape, also does well. Due to the warm climate and Pierce’s Disease, you won’t find much Chardonnay or Pinot Noir in the valley. Visit today!
