Off to the Internat’l Food Bloggers Conference in Sacto & WBC Lodi!

July 29, 2016

As the summer draws to a close, before I head back to teaching, I’m attending two bloggers conferences, one on food and one on wine, where I will have the opportunity to share some ideas about wine, food, and writing! I’ll mostly be blogging about these on Wine Predator, with the occasional reblog here. I’m also hitting the trail — The Pacific Crest Trail is the plan to re-hike a Sierra section that I hiked 30 years ago! Now to finish packing and hit the road! This blog posts includes a few tips on how to pair wine and food as well as some tasting notes about two very wonderful Lodi area wines from Cantara Cellars.

  • Justin wine and food at the winery’s restaurant where they only offer a five course tasting menu with pairings
  • Rhone food and wine at their event and the meal that Sue prepared at home to pair with Rhone wines
  • Italian food and wine CHEESE vegetarian dinner dinner that Sue prepared
  • South African wine and food that Sue researched and prepared for August’s Wine Pairing Weekend post
