Make it easier on myself and set resolutions I WANT TO KEEP:
From a winemaker friend who shall remain nameless: I will try a little wine before spin class.
From a fellow WSET grad Cathy Martin: I will pour at Pulchella’s Tasting Room because they will be packed to the rafters.
From a local Paso fiend: Yes, I have my reservations and WILL GET THERE.
From DiMaggio Washington: I’ll think about WSET Level 3 for 2012!
From Dr. Joel Fisher, LA Wine Fest and SCV Wine Fest Founder: I will be your Wine Princess/Hostess at SCV Wine Fest February 12.
From old pal Mary Harmon-y: Of course I’ll resolve never to drink bad wine, that’s what “wine tasting” is for!
From Gary Warburton, winemaker for Chateau Pacific in Manhattan Beach: I will be there on February 5 for the “Meatball Madness Bottling featuring Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio with perhaps a cameo appearance by a certain fat red rodent, more surprises and then something sweet before Grand Marnier and Cuban cigars.”
From my decorator, Pam Jaffke: I will drink wine in my new kitchen before my checks clear!
From staff writer Michael Perlis: I will drink
my his Turley Zin.
From staff writer Rusty Sly: I will drink his
wife’s Hendricks Gin.
From my husband: I will master the waiter’s corkscrew without any of his friggin’ help.
From my mother: I will keep making a decent living as a writer.
