The really BIG wine glass
On a recent visit to a restaurant, oh lets just say for argument’s sake, in Tucson Arizona, we asked for the “big wine glasses please” that we were assured they owned. We were told something along the lines of, “They’re in the dishwasher.”
When we saw other guests just arriving, also with their own wines in tow, we tried again, wanting to have the hot, wet glasses fogging up our wines first.
But now they were said to be, complete with what appeared to us as unapologetic glee, “Being used at another table.”
When the other table got OUR glasses, at that point, we just wanted to get our bottles opened to dash into whatever receptacle we could find. (I was grateful not to be wearing pumps.)
We grumbled until we started, gee, you might have guessed it, drinking. Eating helped too. Suffice to say if you want a really nice glass either drink out of your own at home, steal from your neighboring table or go to a wine-friendlier restaurant.
No, I’m not telling you where we were. But feel free to reply to this post as to where we should eat…errr I mean drink…next.

A little teaser – just for SCV Classic/Wine 101 friends
I have not yet updated the list of wineries for this year’s Classic, but am receiving commitments from several outstanding wineries, with my own collection of older, library wines.
There will be similar wineries as last year, and a few surprises I can’t announce yet.
This year’s library table poured by a friend who poured Colgin Cabernet last year, will have 01 Bryant Family, instead.
And, the friend who usually donates older Bordeaux wines has given me half a dozen beauties from 1982, 1986 & 1990, that will be poured at the Jacobson library table along with Williams Selyems and a good selection of terrific wines.
I may put a couple of the old Bordeaux’s, as well as a magnum of 1995 Charmes Chambertin, on the silent auction or pour them.

Messages for Peter, aka The Goose, Are STILL Coming In
My husband and I have been to the Goose events for three years. So sad to see a business with so much support go the way of this ‘perfect storm’ we are all living. Karena T.
I’m terribly sad! Not only was this great for SCV, but it was across the street from my home. What a ‘claim to fame’! Just too bad… each year produced a larger turn out and better vineyards. The Goose will definately be missed!!!! 🙂 Erin H.
It’s a sad day for our wine community in Santa Clarita and for any wine lover when you see a fellow wine lovers business fail. I didn’t know him but knew what he did for the wine lovers here and that is what prompted me to send out the mail. The wine flag is at half staff today. :((( Steve L.
I admire Peter for what he has done for the wine community and for the city of SC. He put us on the map of the wine Wine World, Period. Too bad he didn’t get the much needed support form the city to keep this going. It’s sad to see the Loose Goose go, but as I know Peter, he already has new plans and I can’t wait to see what’s coming. We should honor him at our next ‘get together’! Roman W.
Here, here…toast to the Goose and much success for his passion of wine in the future. Jenny L.
Hi Eve, Well, I must say that Peter’s special blend has pretty much kept me together. Had I known how rare it was, I might have spaced it out a little better and wouldn’t be down to my last bottle—nah! I’m truly sorry for Peter’s loss and for his staff. What a great group of people. His web site seems to be turned off, so if you know his email, could you please pass on my condolences and wishes for better days for all of us in the future. I thought wine, tobacco and anti-aging products were all supposed to thrive in this down economy!! What are we to do???
Dear Eve, sorry to hear about Peter! He was asset to our wine community. John K.
Farewell from the Goose
