There’s wifi on this bus taking attendees of the First Wine Blogging Conference to Sebastiani for dinner and a keynote address by Alice Feiring.
“Amazing,” says Elodie my seatmate.
I may be the only person blogging from this bus but here I am.
“Only in America eh?” Elodie says. She’s French and currently living in Prague. She and her husband have devloped a cellar tracker application for Mac users. I’ll add the link when I find her card… “I am always surprised when I come here.”
We’re on the way to Sebastiani in Sonoma for dinner at the Wine Bloggers Conference after tasting Sonoma county wines. Somewhere I have all the cards and misc propaganda about the wines which I will share sometime I promise.
I ask Elodie about her favorites, and she says, “I liked a sauv blanc but I tasted so many I can’t remember it. In the red, I liked all of them but I can’t really say there was one I appreciated more than another one. The reds were quite tasty; some were spicier than others. I usually hardly drink white wine but this sauv blanc was excellent. It made me rethink drinking white wine. If I see the bottle or the website I’ll remember it. It has an effect, something inside, you feel something special but you can’t really explain it. Makes you think, wow, I like this wine. the first rough feeling you have.”
“Email the name of the wine to me when you find it,” I beg.
And then you wil have it too.
