Getting ready for the Wine Blogger Conference

It’s been a crazy week, and every day I look at my blog and think, “today’s the day I’m going to do a little blogging.” I’ve got so many posts running around my head, waiting to come out. And then I get caught up in the myriad business-critical things going on at Able Grape Central, and, well, by 9 pm I just want to chill out with a nice glass of wine and a good book (yesterday’s pairing was the 2001 William Fèvre Chablis Grand Cru “Valmur,”, an acidic, minerally, leesy/honeyed bit of yum that I just couldn’t keep my hands off of, even though I really should wait another 3-5 years, and Niccolò Ammaniti’s latest book “Come Dio Comanda,” which won the “Strega” prize for Italian literature. Too early to comment on the book, but so far it seems on a par with Ammaniti’s usual blend of excellent writing and a really sick imagination).

Over the next couple of days I’ll have the pleasure of meeting many of you at the Wine Bloggers Conference, in Santa Rosa. Earlier this year I had the good fortune to attend the European Wine Blogger Conference, the first ever of its kind, and it was fantastic. I look forward to seeing how the two events differ, and to connecting with a lot of you over the weekend. Please say hi!
