Pre-Flight Check-In: #WBC16

♪♫ I’m leaving on a jet plane. Don’t know when I’ll be back again. ♪♫

Oh wait, yes I do[1].

This week I’m jetting off to the 2016 Wine Bloggers Conference in Lodi, California. Thanks to a generous scholarship from a group of very generous donors, my flight costs are being covered[2]. THANK YOU! I Cannot Wait. I’ll be reuniting with one of my #FancyInFrancey friends, Michelle from Rockin’ Red Blog, and I’m sure I’ll be meeting meet a whole bunch of new wine friends! We’ll be watching the Olympics 24/7 visiting vineyards, talking shop, sipping wines[3], live blogging, and a whole lot more. And since I just joined the world of Snap Chat[4], I’ll try to get some snaps in too.


I got some practice in this week with a sprightly bottle of Zinfandel from Lodi. Exceptional value at under $15. Deep and luscious, this was a great buy from Naked Wines.File Aug 07, 4 29 27 PM

Today I kept it in the California family with a gorgeous 2012 Horseshoe Vineyard Chardonnay by Rhys Vineyards. Smoky, full and oaky. Great mouth feel, definitely a full bodied white. Perfect for this sweltering 85° day.

Have you been to Lodi? What’s your favorite vineyard there?
