WineRelease.com's May 15, 2006 Monthly Newsletter


Greetings from WineRelease.com, now 1,094 winery listings strong!

I spent the weekend in Paso Robles at Hospice du Rhone and had a great time at the barrel preview and library tasting, grand tasting and a winemaker dinner at Justin. My friend Randall and I sat at the Peachy Canyon table with hosts Doug and Nancy Beckett and enjoyed great wine, food and conversation. I did a few Podcasts while at Hospice that I will be publishing later this month. Stay tuned.


And now, on to the show...
