Concerts in Proseccoland April 5 & 6
The biggest news is that my old American cover band is reuniting for a few shows in Proseccoland on Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6, the days leading up to Vinitaly.
Back in the early 1990s when I was in my 20s, my good friend, roomate, and bandmate Shawn Amos (above center) and I fronted a cover band that toured the Veneto artisanal and unpasteurized beer circuit for three summers.
Check out Shawn’s site. He’s a pretty interesting dude.
More details soon but these will be SUPER fun shows and the band is smoking…
Pouring wine at Sotto in Los Angeles
and Jaynes Gastropub in San Diego
Thursday March 14 and Friday March 15
Thursday, March 14, I’ll be at Sotto in LA (where I co-curate the wine program) for the launch of our new spring list.
Friday, March 15, I’ll be pouring a flight of wines Italian and otherwise at Jaynes Gastropub and later in the evening, our San Diego-based band The Grapes (above) will be doing a set on the back patio.
Sunset magazine just named the Jaynes Burger the “best in San Diego.” That’s what I’ll be having, paired with a glass of Cantele Salice Salentino.
Wine Dinners in Houston & Austin
March 19 and 20
I’m very geeked about the White Wine and Seafood dinner where I’m speaking at Ciao Bello in Houston on Tuesday, March 19.
And on Wednesday, March 20, I’ll be presenting winemaker Tracey Brandt of Donkey & Goat at a dinner featuring her wines at Vino Vino.
Please come out and taste and rock out with me!
