Well…the long wait is over! If not for my fellow
, at least for my own incessant #Vinopanions #wine cravings and the need to blast out my ramblings de vinos. is finally live, as we are in the process of shutting down the long-running WardKadel.com . With this relaunch, you will find more content combining my two passions of WineLog.net #triathlon & wine, as well as a newfound love of cooking and of course, the chronicles of our life in . #Napa
Indeed just last night, with
(featured left in the vineyards of the Lady ) in NYC for a fashion convention, I knocked out two very enjoyable recipes from Domaine Chandon , which has been a life-changer for me to Blue Apron finally learn and love to cook.
@BlueApron & #Beaujolais!
Cooking and first dinner (heh) was accompanied by the deliciously juicy
, from 2015 Domaine des Quatre Vents Fleurie (review Vivino) extraordinaire Beaujolais . And since the journey of wine can never end ( Georges Duboeuf thank goodness, right??), I listened to my two favorite wine podcasts:
And so it with those two tasty
#recipe‘s and these two brilliant wine podcasts, I will bid you adieu until my next – Ward Kadel – #Vinopanion post. @drXeNo
Loving that #NapaLife!
I don’t know if my life has turned the speed of time to 11 or what this year, but it’s already time again for one of the best SF wine events of the year: . 7th Annual Pinot Days 2011 ( Twitter) Last year’s event was a must attend and this year Lisa and Steve Rigisich et al, have added a slew of additional events for the entire week of festivities and have expanded many wine regions to make this one even . How can such a fine vino event get any better, you ask? Try upping the number of producers over the 200 mark (over 400 mo’ betta Pin ot Noir), organizing “ ever gathered the largest presence of Oregon producers outside of ” [I’m excited about this one], a fantastic online Oregon and a new charity auction to showcase the birthplace of this finicky but fine grape variety. Burgundy Corner
is being hosted over at Pinot Days San Francisco Online Auction BiddingForGood.com as I write this and attendance at the Festival is not needed in order to bid. This year’s Charity Beneficiary is the OCMC Water Well Dig Project for the Turkana people of Loupwala in East Africa. There are a ton of diverse lots available, including 2009 Kosta Browne Winery Russian River Valley Pinot Noir – Magnum Etched & Signed in Wooden Box, Socolo Chocolatier Artisan Chocolate Truffles and the awesome 2008 Benziger Pinot Noir (3 Tiers) – 1 Case and Gift Certificate for a Benziger Biodynamic Tram Tour lot!
full deets for the are below and my posse and myself are going to be at the entire week of Pinot fun Grand Festival in full, spitting force (minus one glorious Lady, unfortunately), so we look forward to seeing all of you there as well!
