Just a couple of quick tid bits of information…

First, that crazy, hippy, biodynamic viticulture dude from Santa Cruz, Randall Graham (also proprietor of Bonny Doon Vineyards ) will make an appearance on Oprah on Thursday, May 21st.  

You can check local listings here, http://www.oprah.com/locallistings

Randall and Oprah will taste the following wines:

  • 2004 Le Cigare Volant
  • 2008 Ca’ del Solo Albarino
  • 2007 Le Vol des Anges

Second, Tracy Rickman, PhD candidate at Auburn University, is working on a research project on the nature of credibility of wine blogs – in other words ‘Do Wine Blogs Matter?’ 

Please take a moment to help a sister out… pour yourself a glass of your favorite Charles Shaw or Yellow Tail, and take a few minutes to complete her survey:  http://dbm.questionpro.com

Seriously, Tracy has expended a great deal of effort on this project that will provide needed information to many of us in, around and outside the wine industry.  The survey will take less than 8 minutes of your time.
