Quick Update From Day One.

We're back at the hotel now after a fun day at the trade show. I'll have some more thoughts tomorrow, but wanted to get up a few pictures and links:

Today we poured three wines:

2007 Syrah Eaglepoint Ranch, Mendocino County
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Uvas Creek Vineyard
2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Santa Cruz Mountains

For everyone we talked with you can sign up on our mailing list at:

For us the highlight was the public session. We had maybe two dozen people stop by who have been following our blogs or posts and that was very cool. We enjoyed meeting all of you. We also got the chance to meet many new people, and we really love the chance to talk about our wine and our story with people.

The day started with a shoe ware emergency. Stefania didn't think her tennis shoes would hold up so we stopped to get her a pair of slip ons at a near by shop.

I got the shirt on our last trip to New Orleans. It's my 'official' trade show shirt.

This was the show just starting as it opened to the trade at 1 PM

And in full swing with the public session.

When we arrived back at the hotel Stef grabbed her knitting and we stopped by the bar to relax for a bit before dinner. That's my Manhattan.

We've had a very nice stay here at the Marriott in Del Mar. One really cool thing about making wine is people remember your job and the entire staff has been following our progress and asking us how things are going. For you serious wine geeks, the restaurant here has a very nice wine list with some great gems on the list. We meet the wine manager last night and chatted about his great list.
More tomorrow after a little rest and water!
