Bob, I just WISH I had known about that dinner mentioned in the article and the 9-year Baco vertical!!! Damn - I should have been at that.

I would love to make a trip down to Henry of Pelham's sometime and ask for a private tour of the vineyard where they have their oldest Baco vines. Those are legendary vines for Ontario, because they represent a part of our still young, albeit undisputable, history with this grape and big reds in our region.

Maybe we could get Howie and Ed interested in joining along - that would make for a nice day.

Hey! I'm trying to get you to come with me to the Finger Lakes to meet up with Dan Smothergill and buy some Vignoles juice! :shock:

Sounds neat ... I'll likely be going to get my grapes on the 23rd however (Concords), but if you go later than that, I may just join along.
