Sorry if it seems I have been M.I.A. lately. I’ve been busy working on some exciting
projects and planning some awesome upcoming wine events!
As a quick update, I’m happy to share that I have two recent
pieces I wrote that have been published:
The first is an article I wrote on wines of the Columbia
Gorge, published in the Gorge Guide.
I am very passionate about this wine region that extends along the
Columbia River on both the Oregon and Washington sides of the river, and was
honored to write this article.
Second, I was asked to write recap of the Independent
Champagne and Sparkling Wine Invitational for Palate Press: The online wine
magazine, published earlier this week.
I am also working on adding an events page to the blog and
also on my website so local folks can keep up with what is going on around
town. I will be holding weekly
wine tasting events at Wine Down East, appropriately titled “Wine Tasting
Wednesdays” from 5-7pm with rotating themes and guest winemakers pouring their
wines. We will be starting this
coming Wednesday, May 12th, with wines from Sokol Blosser. On May 19th we will be featuring wines from
Boedecker Cellars, and more in the works.
Also, if you are in Hood River, I will be teaching a six-part
wine series at The Pines tasting room.
The classes will be held on the second Monday of each month. Our first class, “Wine 101: The Art of Drinking Wine” is this
coming Monday, May 10th at 6:30pm. This would be the perfect Mother’s Day gift for any of your
wine loving mothers out there… <hint hint> Click here for details on how to reserve your spot!
Until the events page is up, please check in on my Facebook
Fan page for upcoming local events.
And cheers to all you Mothers out there, have a fabulous
Mothers Day!!! I will be celebrating the special occasion with my own mom,
grandma, and sister this weekend in Arizona!
