Taste with me at Aspen Food & Wine, NYC, SF, LA, SD

From the department of “hello, I must be going”…

jeremy parzen wifeIt’s insane, I know, it really is. Just three weeks after returning from a two-week trip there, I’m heading back to Italy tonight.

This time, it’s for a very special trip to a very special place. I will reveal both next week.

Today, I’m just trying to forget about that sinking feeling in my stomach. It’s just so hard to say goodbye to Tracie P and the girls after so much travel this year.

Tracie P’s uncle John shared this nugget of wisdom today on my Facebook: I travelled for years to work and was gone a month at a time. I learned to have short goodbyes and focus on long homecomings. Saying goodbye just plain ain’t easy. I feel your pain.

You can say that again: Saying goodbye just plain ain’t easy.

In the meantime, I wanted to share details of some upcoming tastings where I’ll be speaking and pouring.

June 19-20: I’ll be pouring a favorite wine (guess which one) at Aspen Food and Wine where Master Sommelier Shayn Bjornholm has asked me to be part of his “Italy: The Big & The Bold” tastings (on both Friday and Saturday mornings of the fair). I believe tickets are already sold out but if you happen to be going, please come to the event. Tracie P will be with me, too.

And I have four Franciacorta, Real Story tastings lined up for July. I’ll be posting more details in coming weeks but here’s the save-the-date (I’m the Franciacorta Consortium’s official blogger and ambassador for U.S. trade this year, a gig I am really enjoying).

And now, as we used to say when I would hit the road with my band, it’s time to sh*t, shower, and shave and get my butt to the airport. See you on the other side…
