FMIII in the OC
Tasted Sunday, February 17, 2013 by brigcampbell with 625 views
You couldn't beat the weather for this years event and thankfully I had a day and a half of recovery from a nasty cold or mutant flu bug which put me out of commission earlier in the week. Falltacular is about wine, and lots of it. But at the end of the day it's really about supporting Laura's House and this Sonia, a graduate of Laura's House, gave a very elegant speech detailing her the abuse that drove her to seek shelter. A devastating story that results in personal triumph and reaffirms to all in attendance they the contributions made here are supporting a more than worthy cause.
As usual for me, I spent way more time with Pinot Noir in my glass than anything else and typically would take a break by visiting the whites or scurrying upstairs for the reds. I worked the main table again for my shift which worked out well since I had a chance to taste through most of the wine right before and had some idea in case people were looking for recommendations or had questions. Bonus points were the number of winemakers in attendance who were interested in tasting the wines that others liked so I shared with them that feedback as well as comments regarding their wines.
The End until near year.
