Scott and I flew to Southern California yesterday to show off his latest award on his 2006 Scott Harvey J&S Reserve Barbera at the 19th Annual Wine Extravaganza 2009 Gold Medal Showcase & Auction. This fundraising event benefitting The Unforgettables Foundation is hosted by Jerry D.Mead's New World International Wine Competition . Scott had received a Double Gold Medal on his wine and we had shipped the wine weeks ago. To our dismay, we arrived to find out the wine hadn't. There's always so much to prepare and get ready for a marketing trip that sometimes we don't check the obvious–confirmation that our wine will be at the wine tasting table when we arrive.
The evening wasn't a total loss. Scott bid on a case of his second favorite wine (after Barbera) –Riesling. We are now taking home a case of the Gold Medal winning Trinity Oaks Riesling. It was a lovely event with a lot of great wines benefitting a very worthwhile cause.
