Penfold’s Dinner tonight at W.L.A. Winehouse

(I do love me some WineHouse news.  This one is for tonight, but don’t worry about the short notice.  The winemaker from Penfolds won’t notice if you’re late as he’s attending via the small screen webcast.  Now I’ve been to chef classes that are televised, and have seen many an Academy award show that a surprise winner has a televised/rehearsed acceptance speech presented in this format.  But – a dinner?  This is new for this little wine 101er; that and the stellar line up of wine that will be presented, say it with me, via webcast.  Very cool.)
