It's hard to believe almost a year has gone by since I attended the Wine Bloggers Conference (WBC) in Santa Barbara. It was my first experience with WBC and I had a fantastic time. I made some incredible new friends, learned an enormous amount at the sessions and had the opportunity to taste wines from across California and around the world.
I signed up for this year's conference even before I got home from California and I can't wait to attend. This year, the conference is hitting the east coast and I'm excited to make my first trip to the Finger Lakes region in New York State. You may remember my review of Evan Dawson's fascinating book, Summer in a Glass, which explores the region through the stories of multiple winemakers. It's a fabulous read and had me itching to explore the area. I'm thrilled this year's conference will give me the chance to do just that.
So this August, Shawn and I will hit the road for a mid-month wine adventure. I hope to re-connect with some of my new wine blogger friends, like the fabulous team from The Vineyard Trail, The Academic Wino and Aleigh from A Glass After Work, among many others.
I'm also looking forward to the chance to taste wines from the Finger Lakes, something the LCBO has decided I don't need to do, and enjoy the experience of learning more about both wine and blogging.
