Browsing through my photos and video from the 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference, this photo stands out for me.

Jay Soloff of DeLille Cellars, was on Saturdays Semillon Panel, for the 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference. Jay Soloff is DeLille Cellars founding partner and marketing director. Located in Woodinville, Washington, DeLille is dedicated to making Old World-style wines from New World fruit. Jay is a very intense guy, I wish I had half as much energy as he projects.
Melissa Peterman is with Foodista.com. We kept bumping into each other during the conference. Foodista is a collaborative project to build the world's largest, highest quality cooking encyclopedia. With contributions, they are working to create a free resource that helps millions of people learn how to cook everything and anything. I knew nothing about Foodista before the conference, now I'm using it as a favorite recipe resource.
Steve Heimoff was Fridays Keynote speaker at the 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference. Steve is West Coast Editor for Wine Enthusiast magazine. He writes columns, feature stories, news stories, web pieces, and he reviews thousands of wines a year. A frequent participant on wine seminars and panels, Steve enjoys traveling the length and breadth of what he refers to as “this great state and its gorgeous wine regions.” Steve reveals, “Best of all, I get to meet some of the nicest people in the world – the members of the wine trade.”
I'd like to echo what Steve said, the members of the wine trade I met last weekend, are some of the nicest people in the world. It was a pleasure to meet you Jay, Melissa and Steve, until next time.
