When you receive this email I'll be in a 'plane flying home after three incredible weeks tasting wine, culminating in the American Wine Society Annual Conference at the amazing Kalahari Resort in Sandusky, Ohio.
But before that I spent a couple of weeks in Missouri visiting wineries and tasting their wines, especially America's very own Norton. Here's details of ny three latest reports on the the Wine site at BellaOnline.com.
