As well as hitting the 2009 ZAP Festival in San Francisco back in January, both Graham and I are heading to Santa Rosa in Sonoma County, California Friday for the 2009 version of the Wine Bloggers’ Conference. It’s being held at the Flamingo Resort from July 24th to the 26th and features lunches with wine, dinners with wine and tastings with more wine… and then parties with, you guessed it – even more wine.
Wineries pouring Friday night at the Grand Tasting of Sonoma Wines include Merry Edwards, Kistler, Joseph Swan Vineyards, Benzinger and many more. We’ll also be taking side trips to the Culinary Institute of America, a mystery Napa winery for lunch, a tasting of Napa Valley wines at Quintessa Winery and much more… It’s going to be so much fun my head just may explode.
Most of the participants are on Twitter and are posting conference-related tweets with the #wbc09 hashtag. It’s going to be a blast and I’ll do my best to post from the events and will probably also have something to say about when I’ve gotten back to Vancouver. You can check out what we’re saying on Twitter while we’re there – I’m @vinifico and Graham is @vino_g. Stay tuned.1 comment
