Zeitgesist & T.G.B. – 4 days to #WBC10

What will you learn from #WBC10?

Man!!!  I can not tell you how much of a tizzy I am in, in anticipation of WBC10.  Sadly to say, this “family re-union” of bloggers, tweeters, sippers, guzzlers, and tweakers , is probably more exciting than perhaps a real family reunion.  Maybe that’s cause I’ll be in the company [...]

The Napa River Terroir Project – Prelude

I, Andrew Lazorchak, have been clamoring about the Napa river since I first came to Napa a few years back.  I was always dumbfounded reading about the Napa River, which told me that it is a “Climate Moderator”.  What is one to think when they only see the river in the dry months of the  [...]
