I like to consider myself the Carrie Bradshaw of the wine world. Not because I am a particularly talented writer, but because I love LA as much as she loves NY AND my expenditures on wine equal hers on Manolo Blahniks. In the 2006 calendar year I spent $13,846.37 on wine. Retail. For some big collectors that’s nothing, I know. But for me, with my modest income, that’s more than I pay annually in rent. And that’s why I’m like Carrie Bradshaw, she couldn’t afford her apartment either.

You know I love a party with good wine and I just got an invite from Sokol Blosser to a meet and greet tasting with Alison Sokol Blosser, on Monday, January 26 from 5:30–8:00 p.m. at the Makai Lounge (www.makailounge.com) in Santa Monica. I've really enjoyed the wines in the past but have to admit that I haven't had them in a long time.
This is from the email I received - gives you all the info. I'm definitely going - anyone want to join me???? Julian? Jeff and Lisa? Jill? Andrew? Dave? Peter? Anybody else??? I hear there's a "goody bag" - SWAG baby!
Sokol Blosser Winery has a long history in Oregon (there were only five or six wineries in the Willamette Valley when they started in the early '70s!). Alison is part of a second-generation that is now leading the winery. She will be offering her perspective on organic and sustainable viticulture, Pinot Noir in Oregon , fun blends like Evolution and Meditrina.
This is an informal gathering, but an RSVP is required by Tuesday, January 20.
To RSVP, contact Anna at email@example.com or by calling (707) 251-9818.
