What do you get when you cross a Master Sommelier, a Master of Wine, and… me?

I don’t know, either, but it’s happening, and I am guessing that it will be entertaining, and hopefully not a little informative.

Wine Conversations 2015

I’ll be joining Master Somm Evan Goldstein, and Master of Wine Bob Paulinski in both Santa Rosa and Portland this summer as part of the DIAM Wine Conversations Tasting and Marketing Forum. We’ll be discussing wine consumer trends, and I’m not gonna say that there will be a lot of tough love on that topic… but… well, we all know about my reputation as a speaker on such matters so consider yourselves officially warned.
