Wine Blogger’s Tasting: The Soft Launch

Today will be a very special day on the mountain for me. Why? Because I’ll be hosting the (soft launch?) debut of a new event up here in the Monte Bello Tasting Room: a Wine Blogger’s Tasting! And I must say, I am looking very forward to this. I’ve got quite a lovely roster confirmed; all of them savvy palates, all of them great writers. Here is my guest list of bloggers:

Amy Cleary

Dave Tong

 Santa Cruz Mountains and Santa Clara Valley Wines

 http://scmwine.blogspot.com/

Gary Chevsky

 The Iron Chevsky Wine Blog

Liren Baker

 Kitchen Worthy

Thea Dwelle

 Luscious Lushes

Wesley Barton

 Barton Orchard

Quite a lovely honor roll, if I do say myself. And I must say as well, that we’ve got a rather fine line-up of wines to sample. Perhaps it’s a bit cheeky, but I thought we’d have a go at mimicking bottle-for-bottle the Ridge wines Robert Parker just reviewed for the Wine Advocate. If you don’t recall that flight, you can click here.

And stay tuned for the run-down on how things proceed, and how our guests match up against Mr. Parker’s palate!
