Wine 4 n00bs

Tonight we had our first wine 4 n00bs class. Rob Gardner from Margaux & Co. guided us through Alsace with samples from J. Fritsch. We had their Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Riesling Grand Cru, and Gewurtztraminer. Fun and information was enjoyed by all.
I did a little lecture about the culture, architecture, food, and beauty of the Alsace and Strasbourg and Colmar. Chris Philpot did a n00b speech about what he was excited to learn. People really reacted positively.
Lots of wine professionals showed up, so I ended up hanging out with Kim from Kroger, Greg from Barren Ridge, John from Ox Eye, and others who will probably be angry I'm not mentioning them. What a cool night. I'm a bit giddy about it all because I had such a good time. Thanks to everyone who came! It was truly a pleasure to host it. Sorry my Power Point presentation was lacking when I used Google to do the slides. Can't wait to see you next month.
