NYC was amazing!

I sooo enjoyed my trip to the big city! 

The wine event I went for was great I found the NY wine consumer to be very sophisticated and they loved our wines so that's always nice! 

I was graciously hosted my my mothers cousin who is a gem I stayed in her guest apartment a block off the park upper west side which was a real treat. We also got to do a little walk around Lincoln Center with her as tour guide which was lovely.  And I enjoyed several springtime strolls in  central park.

Thanks for your gracious hospitality Mary!!

There was of course a lot of fancy NY style meals out. There was one very special evening out with my NY distributor Fredrick Wildman who has done a beautiful job placing our wines in some on ny finest restaurants. 

That special dinner was at one of those restaurants that carries our wine WD-50 which was an epic meal - the chef Wylie Dufresne is doing an amazing job and the staff was 'on it' we had a great evening and I got to meet one of our collectors Rich Altus and his lovely wife Beth - they are really fun people we just had a great time together!

You share a birth year with Wylie of WD 50. Mr. Dufresne has a sense of humor. Who names a restaurant referencing a Water Displacement rocket chemical perfected on the 40th try? Just what is he implying?

ahh cc - very clever of you ... Mr. Dufresne is a leading American proponent of molecular gastronomy, the movement to incorporate science and new techniques in the preparation and presentation of food
