Writing in a hurry this morning before heading out for another long day of tastings and business meetings but just wanted to give a shout-out and send thanks to everyone who came out for my Franciacorta seminar and tasting yesterday.
Our morning event (above) was packed with some of the best and brightest from the NYC Italian wine scene. And we poured 24 skus from 20 different wineries at the afternoon gathering.
I can’t thank you all enough for coming out to support Franciacorta and me.
Special thanks also to Emily Corso from L’Apicio who did a fantastic job of hosting. Super nice, super pro.
Thanks also to everyone who reached out to check in with the Parzen family after yesterday’s extreme flooding in Houston.
Luckily, the house we rent in southwest Houston is outside the city’s flood plain.
Our thoughts and prayers to out to our neighbors who weren’t so fortunate, including the folks who live on the bayou just north of us. They’re still reeling from the flooding last May.
I’m happy to report that Tracie P and the girls spent the day at home and then went out puddle jumping once the storm passed.
