On my way to Burgundy via Boulder

robert bohr sommelierAbove: yep, I’ll be hanging with Robert Bohr and Raj Parr this weekend, drinking ridiculous Burgundy and munching on pizza at Bobby Stuckey and Lachlan Patterson’s Pizzeria Locale in Boulder this weekend.

It’s a tough job but someone has to do it… tomorrow I’ll be heading to Boulder, Colorado where I’ll be attending the fourth annual Boulder Burgundy Festival.

Back story: in spring 2014, Master Sommelier and owner of Boulder Wine Merchant Brett Zimmerman (one of the nicest people in the trade) asked me to blog for his shop and for the festival.

Italy is my signora but Burgundy is my mistress. While I’m often invited to taste rare Italy, I’m rarely asked to join in tastings of upper-tier Burgundy. So you can imagine how exciting this is for me.

Here’s the schedule of events/tastings.

But the thing I’m most looking forward to is getting to hang with the amazing cast of wine characters who will be in attendance.

The festival begins tomorrow and I’ll be posting throughout the weekend on the tastings and meals.

Thanks for being here and please stay tuned!
