    I’ve been tasting a bit of Colorado wine, and I’m yet to visit a local vineyard. For some reason the vineyard you visited reminded me of CO… I could be way off though. Maybe it was just the hills and the rocky soil.

    QOTD: I know it’s late, but over the weekend I worked, popped both an Italian white (Pinot Grigio, of all things, but it was the Fantinel Tessis de Borgo from Friuli that you did on the show a LONG time ago- decent stuff) and a Sardinian red (2005 Argiolas Perdera), and had a few LONG conversations over the phone with family back home on the East Coast on Easter Sunday. Family really is the most important thing…

    Sweet little video of the south of France.

    QOTD: I was on the French Riviera all weekend. Nice, Monaco, Cannes, Antibes, Ventamiglia in Italy. Phenomenal places down there. I am in love. It is also amazing how rose down there seems to go with all the beautiful food, and how can you not drink a rose on a beach in the sun? It pretty much demands it

    It is Easter weekend and therefore there are a lot of family and church events planned.
    Just a quick note – and I don’t want to come off preachy – I would much prefer you dropping an “F bomb”, than for you to use the GD phrase. It is just not cool!

    Well, it’s a bit late, but last weekend….our family went out to celebrate my Mom’s 80th birthday. Had a lovely dinner and some unremarkable wines. But the company was fabulous!

    I want that couch. Seriously. Can we work out some kind of deal? I’ll fly out there and mop the floors or stock wines or something. God it looks so comfy!!! Anyways back to the wine. Sorry about losing a friend over being who you are, Im sure we all know how that feels but it still hurts. QOTD: I assume this is somewhat related to it being Easter weekend and its obviously not Easter now. As ive said before I work weekends so I dont really do much other than work. I usually come home and just vegetate online or do some reading.

    Have had this wine and it was terrible, was going to bring it back to WL it was so bad. I found nothing good to say about it..think Gary is just selling wine with this one..even if he starts downplaying if it was good at the end. 92 pts minus 20… http://www.winelx.com
