Just a quick blurb on some updates for coming market visits. I’m very excited to be going to North Carolina in less than 2 weeks. From February 26th until March 3rd I’ll be in the Tar Heal State, spending time in Charlotte, Asheville, and Raleigh. During this time we’ll be hosting a few events and tweetups! Stay tuned to Twitter and Facebook as these details continue emerge, but expect a fun time with excellent wines. I’ll also be sure to get the word out via email to those in the area.
The following week I’ll be heading down to San Diego. There are a few highlights to this trip, starting off with a winemaker dinner on Friday, March 9th at Roy’s Hawaiian Fusion restaurant in La Jolla! Brian Lee, their managing partner, and myself have been hard at work crafting an excellent menu to match our exquisite wines with their incredible dishes. On my last trip to San Diego, I was able to dine at their downtown location and try the Butter Fish. Its light, elegant texture simply cries for our 2010 Cornerstone Cellars Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Also in the works, a pouring/tweetup event at We Olive in La Jolla. This olive oil/wine bar is often frequented by locals and has a great by the glass selection. Lastly I will be pouring at Family Winemakers located in Del Mar. This event showcases many of the small California wine producers, such as Cornerstone, that you have come to love.
I’ll then be making my way up to Pasadena via Orange County. I love the OC, though I find myself not being as familiar with it as I would like. Any suggestions for where I should grab lunch or dinner on a Monday night? Please tweet me, I’m ^ac @CornerstoneNapa.
