The annual Louis/Dressner vigneron tour rode into town and once again Joe Dougherty graciously opened up his apartment to the screaming hordes. Well, perhaps not as screaming as in the past as, unfortunately, Arianna Occhipinti and a number of other Italian producers didn't make the trip this year. Gone was the Real Wine Assault, replaced this year by operation Occupy Spoof!
As usual, the wine flowed like a river and Joe always lays out a great spread and opens up intriguing wines, so hearty thanks go to him for enabling way too much fun to be had on a Sunday night.
Below are some of the more noteworthy wines I tried last night, from memory.
