1.56pm, Friday 27th January, Fleet street, Fells Point, Baltimore, MD, USA
Hi folks – last day in Charm City – Baltimore! We had an early start this morning with the big sales meeting for our distributor in this part of the world – Bacchus Wines. We showed them the two star new wines of the moment – the 2011 Yalumba Y Vermentino and the 2010 Yalumba Strapper GSM – which have been winning hearts and palates at a rate of knots across The states of Maryland, Virginia and Delaware plus the District of Columbia (that’s the nations capital Washington for those folks from Australia that tune in) for this past week. So we’re leaving town happy, having caught up with a lot of old friends that we hadn’t seen for a while, and made a whole lot of new ones. I have a load of laundry in the drier to take care of as I’ve started packing for the drive up to New York, then a tasting with Michael Fishman over at Quarry Wines in Federal Hill. Then I need to show you what’s happening at the Wines Of Annapolis wine bar “Grapes” and the new DC Macarthur Park restaurant “Salt & Pepper”
See ya when we’re finished work and off to check out the cool old neighbourhood of Federal Hill.
PS i wasn’t joking – here’s the crab chips!
