Wine Bloggers' Conference 2011 - Part II - The Novel

----------------------------------


WARNING. IT. IS. LONG.


The 2011 Wine Blogger's Conference held in beautiful Charlottesville, VA was, for me, a fun-filled, thought-provoking, even inspiring weekend. 


BUT

I have to admit that when I first arrived at WBC11 I was feeling a little, shall we say...

FUSSY

Wine Bloggers' Conference Part I - THANK YOU!



I have to start by saying Thank You for the millionth time (and it wouldn't be enough!) to the generous donors who made my scholarship to WBC 2011 possible.

THANK YOU!

A Prelude to a Conference.

BOOOOH YAAAAAAAAAAAH!

Whew... ok.  (fans self.) I'm ok. Really. But DUDE! I'm GOING TO WBC11!! THIS WEEKEND!

Ok, ok.  I'll stop shouting. But seriously. I couldn't be more excited to meet up with some people who have become dear friends, to meet people whose work I admire so very much, and to learn a TON about how to make my blog the best it can be for you, my dear readers! All 5 of you ;o)

The Perfect Summer Red - Lieb Cellars - 2008 Bridge Lane Cabernet Franc




MASSIVELY HUGE DISCLAIMER:  

I WORK FOR LIEB CELLARS. I BOUGHT THIS WINE FOR MYSELF. 
I REALLY LIKE IT.

Ok. I feel better now, don't you?

So. I've been hanging out in the tasting room lately so I can meet as many of my FABULOUS!! wine club members as possible and to show off our yummy wines to our throngs (and I mean throngs) of admirers. I've been pouring a LOT of our wine.
