WineRelease.com's July 15, 2010 Monthly Newsletter.


Greetings from WineRelease.com, now 1,627 winery listings strong!

Congratulations to Spain for winning the World Cup! We watched the game in the middle of 300,000 people on the main boulevard in Madrid, stretching for blocks. There was a giant TV at each intersection. When the goal was scored, it was utter chaos as everyone jumped up and down and cheered, then hugged one another for 2 minutes straight. It was touching scene I will never forget. It is a huge win for the country.

So our time here in Spain is coming to an end. We return to the US next month. We will miss our new friends here, the food, the wine and our neighborhood fruit stand, fish market, meat market and corner tapas bar.

We are looking forward to seeing our friends in the states and starting the planning for our new Napa property. It is exciting to get winery event emails and actually be able to make plans to attend, which is a huge benefit of living in San Francisco, so close to Napa/Sonoma/Central Coast/Santa Cruz/Mendocino wine regions. I forwarded three emails today to my wife with "we should go to this". One of my favorite events during this time of year is the Kendall-Jackson tomato festival. Where else can you try over 400 varieties of tomatoes in one place? I never knew how much I liked tomatoes until I went there years ago. This year we plan to get there early to ensure we have first pick of the heirloom seeds for our Napa garden.

Today we are taking off to Milan to visit my family, then to Lucca to visit my wife's family. For our three plane tickets (my niece is staying with us this month) our total cost was $164. Crazy... It is $6 to go Madrid to Milan and $19 to return, plus taxes. Yes, there are things we’ll definitely miss about living in Europe.

Our movers came to give us an estimate and unfortunately, we can't bring any food/wine... Not even the 20 lbs of paella rice we have (buy a paella pan for $7 and get 3 kilos of rice free). So our checked bag home will be full of food items.


And now, on to the wine...
