A Road Trip devoted to wine.

I really enjoyed this lady's trip from Texas to California and back, including her interviews with winemakers along the way. A few statistics from The Cork and Demon's Western Wine Tour:

C&D STATS:

Miles driven: 8060
Wines Tasted: 437 (approximately; counting barrel tastings)
Winemakers/Growers Interviewed: 33
Road Kill Sightings: 78
Hot Bartenders: 1
Hot Winemakers: 2
Snotty Winemakers: 2
Great Meals: 10
National/State Parks Hiked: 8
Percentage of Regret For Spending Shitloads of Money On Journey: 0.00%


Except for the odd corked wine -- and even then not much regret for actaully spending the money on it -- I completely resonate with that last statistic. :-)
