I will be sure to send you greetings from American Wine and Food Festival in Los Angeles this weekend. If you are in the area please come see me as the Center for Wine Origins sponsors the Wolfgang Puck VIP reception and “Sherry Yard’s Sweet Sanctuary Champagne and Port Lounge”. Festival tickets are still on sale ($300 each) HERE. You can also stop by our table at the Grand Tasting for some delightful tastings of Ports and Champagnes. And perhaps the BEST part of the trip is the amazing restaurants we are slated to dine at during our stay. I'll be sure to give you recap. The line-up includes Bazaar by José Andrés, XIV by Michael Mina, Pop Champagne & Dessert Bar, Toscana Brentwood and the finale at Yamashiro.
