WINEIRES UNLIMITED - TASTING IMPACT
Wow! Last night was the wine tasting reception at the annual Wineries Unlimited show in Valley Forge, PA. I traveled from Ghent, NY, to NYC, to Freehold, NJ, down to PA. It was a long trip! Afterwards, my hotel room felt like home.
But every year, like a little kid, I look forward to the reception as a tasting experience. You see so many people, and you taste so many wines. It's incredible. Last night I tried wines from as far down as Georgia, and as far north as Canada, and as far west as Ohio. Incredible.
And of course, there were many, many people.
