Nearly Wordless Wednesday-May 25, 2011

As a person who loves wine, yesterday was a reason to celebrate with a glass in hand.  It was the 35th anniversary of the infamous Paris Tasting where California wines were chosen as the winners of the blind tasting arranged by Steven Spurrier.  I know that the Chateau Montelena Chardonnay was actually chosen the winner, but what can I say?  I’m a red wine drinker so a substitution was made.

I plan to mark this anniversary today by enjoying great wine and watching Bottle Shock.  I’ll raise my glass and celebrate a great moment in American wine history.  Then I’ll start looking for the next anniversary of a great moment in viticulture to celebrate.  I sure hope it’s right around the corner.
