Re: Dirty and Rowdy 6 Pack + Interactive WB Tasting

In for a pack. And the Zoom is here https://zoom.us/. Love the Zoom idea. My friends and I have started Zoom happy hours as we are locked down the next 3 weeks in SF.

Re: Food anWd wine in China (Shanghai, Beijing, Hangzhou)

Sorry as I don't have any specifics to give you as most of my coworkers are the ones to pick hole in the wall spots, but wine is usually prohibitively expensive to drink anything nice in China. I tend to stick to Tsingtao/Snow beer and baijiu. For hot pot chains, Laowang and Haidilao are my go-to's.

Re: Little Things Mean a Lot - the Travel Version

Re: non-Napa wine regions

In Paso, I've really enjoyed Tablas Creek and Dilecta. Also, Mcprice Myers makes pretty big bold Rhone blends and syrahs.

Re: What's the wine that changed your life?

For me, going to Terre Rouge with a friend's family during college and doing a few tasting got me into wine. What really got me hooked was a couple of 2007/2010 Chateauneufs I had at dinners in Europe. The combo of good food and wine opened my eyes to what was out there outside of the Trader Joe's w...
