Shinn_vines_3I’ve been using LENNDEVOURS to share my experiences with New York wines for well over a year — but over the next two weeks I’m taking things to a whole new level.

To start, the juicemaster general, Beau of BasicJuice, will be in my neck of the woods later this week (along with the Wine Goddess), so I’ll be playing tasting tour guide on Friday. Any excuse to take a day off of work and taste wine, right?

As if that weren’t enough, next week the obsessed one, Derrick and I are teaching a class at Stony Brook University together and I’ll be playing tour guide for him and his wife Melissa as well.

It’s going to be a fun couple of weeks…and hey, these are the first bloggers I’m meeting in person.
