This week is the Society of Wine Educators 35th annual conference in Rhode Island. I’m very sad not to be going and not to see old friends and make some new ones. Knee surgery has put a stop to many of my summer activities but that’s life. I have discovered that many people have had meniscus and/or ACL surgery, a shocking amount of people.
Back to the conference in Rhode Island where so many great speakers will be conducting seminars among them Alfonso Cevola, Kevin Zraly, Robin Kelley O’Connor, Mary Ewing Mulligan and Ed McCarthy, Mary Gorman, David Glancy, Sharron McCarthy, Ed Corry, Jane Nickles, Eric Orange and many others. I’ve always had a great time at the conference, meeting new people, tasting great wines and seeing the folks from the Society, Shields, Carla and others. Kentresa will be missed by many I am sure.
Every year at the conference I learned something new, met an interesting person and discovered a new wine that I enjoyed. I find the conference a great investment and wish that I were going.
My good friend Rodolphe and Eileen will surely share their experiences with me but I do wish I could participate in person. Next year…
