Oz Clarke Goes to CIA

Oz Clarke was touring the Hudson Valley yesterday, Tuesday, October 19, 2010. First he tasted a flight of Hudson Valley wines.

Then he made a trip upstate to Hyde Park, where he lectured on world wines in Steven Kolpan's and Michael Wiess's wine class at the Culinary Institute of America. It was amazing to see three great wine experts/writers together. It was an incredible experience. Kolpan and Wiess have written three books together, including what has become the CIA text book, Exploring Wine. Oz is out supporting his three new books, including his Pocket Guide to Wine 2011, his new expanded Grapes & Wine (a classic of the genre), and Let Me Tell You About wine, an introduction to wine.

This was the hall being set up before the lecture.

This is Oz's publicist Caroline Mann.

A great time was had by all. Will add Oz's tasting notes in the near future.
