Would You Like To Chat With Paul Draper While You Taste Wine Together?



Because you can.

You see, due to the magic of technology, Paul Draper can be beamed right  into your living room –this Friday night– for a live wine tasting. And you can be beamed into his.


Virtual Winemaker Tasting of Spring Releases

Friday, April 12, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PST)


It will be like Princess Leia’s hologram and FDR’s Fireside Chats all rolled into one.

You, Paul, the night, and the music.


The tasting. The chat. The magic.

He sips. He sip. You make a comment. He chuckles appreciatively, compliments you on your palate.

He sips, smiles. You smile too. This is amazing.

Wine after wine. The banter, the insights, the stories.

You remember France. So does Paul.

You like lamb. Paul does too.

This is amazing.

You note a hint of cedar. Paul notes eucalyptus.

You, a pleased half-laugh. Paul, a knowing grin.

This is amazing.

Then, finally, the last sip of Cabernet.

It’s over. The lights dim.

Paul says, “Beam me up, Christopher.”

And then he’s gone.

Like The Cat and the Hat and his proverbial moss-covered three-handled family gradunza, he is gone.

But with you

remains a memory

that will last
