  1. We've participated in six of these (I think) with great enjoyment and will again next week. The amazing thing though is that so far you've managed to miss any of the 250 or so Washington wines I already have in my cellar, so I'll again have to buy more wine. Darn.

  2. I'm hoping to attempt my first virtual tasting on Thursday. I'm assuming I just post my notes on your web site, as I don't tweet. And for any interested parties, I just purchased the wine at Cost Plus World Market in Silverdale, WA for $11.99 (plus another 10% off for four or more bottles).
