Truchard Wine Dinner at BOKX109 in Newton, MA

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

First of all, I wanted to thank everyone for reading and commenting on the shelf-talker piece I submitted to Palate Press last week. The comments and discussion generated awareness around a subject I feel is important, and I really appreciate your support.

A quick mention of an event tomorrow night in Newton...
