Just a heads up. I have a new book out, Passion for Pinot. In support of it (and wine, and life in general) I'll be tasting a few Pinots at the Jug Shop tomorrow live in-store with live people. But everyone else in the world can taste along with me via Twitter Taste Live, a supercool new organization that connects interested people with the producers and tastemakers of all things good to drink, eat, smoke (legally) and, as they say, "anything related to 'tasting'."
Simply get a free twitter account and tune in at 8 PM Eastern/5 Pacific to taste with us. We'll be surveying three Pinots--one from Oregon, Willakenzie Estate; one from Sonoma, Sonoma Coast Vineyards, and one from Santa Barbara, Gainey. If you can, pick up a bottle of one of those or--if you don't have time--any Pinot and join in the discussion. See you there.
