Wine Bloggers Conference Update

Quick update - great venue and my first time attending the Wine Bloggers Conference. Last month I mentioned that I was going to miss-out on the sold-out conference in Walla Walla, Washington. Nope.


Zephyr Adventures, the organizers of the Wine Bloggers conference, called me Wednesday and asked if I could volunteer and lend a hand. Lend a hand? You bet! Working as a volunteer is nothing new. Working as a wine event helper is one of the perks of keeping active in the Washington wine community.

What an amazing time. I have videos and photos to transfer from phone and camera to computer. Maybe tomorrow. Great turnout, bloggers like me, bloggers for companies and wineries, sales reps, marketing types (Hi Matt). Did I mention the wines? It's been a gauntlet of wines from Washington, California, Spain, Portugal, France, Australia, Austria and Italy. Did I miss anyone?

I'm not a good speed blogger, but I made my best efforts on Facebook. It'll take me a few days to gather thoughts, photos and video. There's some good stuff I'd like to share. But still have the rest of the morning to go through, panel sessions, seminar and a wine food pairing.

Cheers!
