The Tasting Notes Were Flowing - Napa Wine Writers Symposium - 2014

No one knows how to seduce the press like the Napa Valley Vintners, who hosted 60 or so wine writers (including yours truly) for the past week at the luxurious Meadowood of Napa resort.

Robert Parker keynoted, Eric Asimov of the New York Times spoke, Jay McInerny offered up novel metaphors and similes, and Columbia University Journalism School professor Michael Shapiro inspired with advice from the heart and road tested techniques. Also appearing: Karen MacNeil of CIA, Jon Bonné of SF Chronicle, Sara Schneider of Sunset, and more.

I'll be posting my photos from the week here soon; in the meantime, enjoy this video…which strangely enough features my hands in the shot below taking a photo of the man of the bon mot - Msr. La McInerny.
