Over the past year, I have been following the Stormhoek meme over at gapingvoid (where the drawing to the left comes from). The winery is now entering the U.S. market and has an ambitious plan to supply their wines for 100 (wine) geek dinners across the country. I have volunteered to host one here in the Twin Cities on May 4, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. From my Frappr listener map, I see there are several local listeners who might be up for a nice evening of wine, food and conversation. Since I don’t know exactly how many to plan for, I am asking everyone to drop me an email so I can get a rough headcount before announcing the restaurant (but I have two restaurants picked out in St. Paul that would be great). We’ll be paying for our own food, but the folks at Stormhoek will be providing the wines. You don’t have to be a tech or wine geek to attend, but there will be a high proportion of local bloggers, podcasters, vloggers and wine lovers in attendance 😉
More details to follow in coming days…
UPDATE: Very cool, even perhaps, “groovy”; Hugh has linked to my humble wine blog. Better have a very blogable wine dinner now (he said as the pressure increased 🙂
Excellent! I wondered if any wine bloggers were going to take up the offer. Can’t wait to hear all about it. Just a pity it is so far away or I would pop in.
Well, since they ignored all of my email inquires (to host one here) maybe I’ll find a way to get to Minnesota.
I’ll practice my accent.
