A Whirlwind Weekend in
were some serious doings in Sonapanoma
during the weekend of September 15th, and The Director and this
taster were right there to stick our noses in the middle of it.
event was a major tasting of the wines of Chateau
Montelena, held at the winery on Saturday afternoon
and hosted by Allan Bree aka califusa, The
Gang’s Left Coast Correspondent. There was also a survey
of Manfred Krankl’s Sine Qua
Non wines the night before, courtesy of Jon Cook
aka Bigdog. Add to that a big Sunday Bar-B-Q at the
beautiful home of Matt and Alicia Parfit in
Petaluma and the fact that “crush” was in full swing and
what more could you ask for? A trip back to Flowers
Vineyards & Winery you say? No hey problema,
thanks to the effort of Larry Meehan and the hospitality
of Walt and Joan Flowers.
The proceedings unfolded with a speed that practically left our heads spinning, but we documented every aspect of our adventures, so pour a glass of something good and join in on all the fun.
