Above: Franco Ziliani and I tasted some fantastic Franciacorta together last September in Erbusco (before Tracie B convinced me to shave my mustache). Franco has been a great friend, a mentor, and an inspiration. I am proud to be his partner at VinoWire. Photo by Ben Shapiro.
Just keeping the world safe for Italian wine… that’s what we do around here.
It was one helluva way to wake up this morning in sleepy La Jolla — where Botox trumps micro ox — to find that the editors at Decanter.com had decided to publish our post on recent developments in Montalcino and subsequent reports by the Italian media.
I’m glad we got a chance to set the record straight and that I can drink my Vino Nobile tonight with Tracie B at Jaynes knowing that the world is safe for Sangiovese (or maybe we’ll drink the 2007 Selvapiana Chianti Rufina, which is showing gorgeously right now).
In other news…
If you’re planning on attending the San Diego Natural Wine Summit this Sunday at Jaynes, please email the restaurant to reserve. We’re almost at capacity and we’ll have to turn people away if they don’t have tickets. Click here for details and to reserve.
Time to bring back the ‘stache. You got her to say yes, now grow it back, dude!
i SO am not responsible for that.
Is an insidious picture you choose Jeremy that give the wrong idea that I drink only sparkling water, while you drink a bottle of one of the best Franciacorta, the best Italian sparkling wine appellation. I confess that me too I drink not only my beloved Barolo, but also Franciacorta…
Your recent photos look younger, leave the mustache off.
you look too young without your mustache, grow it back
Don’t take advice from anon. posters, nit’s probably subterfuge.
tom, we are a united front, you and me.
anon–i wonder if a ‘stache would do the same for me? should i grow mine back, 2B?
Jeremy, I vote for your mustache, grow it back! Tracie fall in love with you when you was mustacious, don’t worry!
to stache or not to stache, that is the question…
Tracie, if you decide to stache, make sure you wait until after the wedding…
