In the final week leading up to the very first North American Wine Bloggers Conference (which I first mentioned here), I wanted to give you readers a preview of what you can expect from me over the next weekend:


2008 North American Wine Bloggers Conference

A vineyard tasting at Kick Ranch Vineyard right off the bat, live wine blogging with 14 wineries including Leon from Lionheart Wines, a New Zealand self-tasting and dinner with Gary Vaynerchuk from Wine Library TV…and that’s just the first day!!

Further sessions include prominent vineyard tours, dinner at Sonoma pioneers, Sebastiani, and the Luxe Sonoma tasting on Sunday, filled with many established and up and coming Sonoma vintners including Medlock Ames (whom I first encountered at WineTwo).

All of these writeups will come in bunches and be more on the fly than you might be used to seeing from me.  I hope that you enjoy them as much as I enjoy writing (experiencing) them!

All of the wines that I will try this weekend at the WBC will be tagged in my WineLog with “WBC2008NA“.

[…] I’m sitting in the second of the Breakout Sessions at the very first North American Wine Bloggers Conference here in 2008 at the Hotel Flamingo.  I’ve already had yet another whirlwind of a day at the conference and would like to give you all a little taste of what I’ve been fortunate to enjoy today and have yet to enjoy for the remainder of the afternoon and evening.
