The evening before IPNC officially started, I attended a pre-IPNC dinner fundraising event at the beautiful Stoller Family Estate in the Dundee Hills of Willamette Valley: Summertime ¡Salud! The Big Dinner: Big Bottles. Big Tables. Big Hearts.
Having just returned from the gorgeous Horse Heaven Hills AVA in southeastern Washington, I’ve barely had time to unpack while I’m already thinking about what to pack for the upcoming 27th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration (IPNC).
As I pack-up for my next adventure in the world of wine and wine writing, I'm reminded of how much I love what I do.
I'm feeling like a very happy wine gal these days; blue skies, warm air, and a summer full of stellar wine events and media trips throughout Oregon and Washington - life couldn't be better. There is much to look forward to, much to be excited about, and a whole lot to write about.
