Wine dinners at Yosemite

by wnissen » Sat Aug 17, 2013 8:07 pm

I got a brochure in the mail about upcoming wine weekends with some heavy hitters of the California wine scene. Bob Lindquist of Qupé, Andy Beckstoffer, Joel Peterson of Ravenswood, and Jason Haas from Tablas Creek were some that caught my eye. It's not cheap, as it's bundled with lodging at the Ahwanee or Yosemite Lodge, but it's not outrageous, either, given what the Ahwanee costs normally. As usual, I have no connection to this event series.

December in Yosemite. I bet that's gorgeous.

Well, that's the other issue. My car's manual claims there is no manufacturer-approved way to attach chains!

Hmmm...I have to be in Los Angeles on the 9th. Could be in Yosemite by the 11th....
