Weekly Hangover

wine-brainEvery Friday, I will summarize what I have learned that week.  This week we have strayed a little from the studying (reading wine books and drinking wine) because we have been dealing with CSS-BS, and of course getting our Twitter & Facebook pages up and running.  We are still working out the kinks, but it’s really almost there.  I did learn a few things this week:

Cabernet Franc is a red grape, duh.

I would have liked to have met Didier Dagueneau, but I’ll have to settle for drinking one of his Pouilly-Fumés.

I watched Bottle Shock.  I knew of the “Judgement of Paris“, but not in any detail.  It piqued my interest, so I read a bunch of websites.

OK, someone clear this up for me.  When opening wine do you cut the foil:hereorhere

We will get back to the books next week.  Today we are off on a field trip to the San Antonio Winery, look for our write-up next week on “Field Trip Fridays”.  Cheers.
