While attending Sheldrake Point Vineyard's riesling vertical this past weekend, I used my new Flip video camera for the first time. I sat down with winemaker Dave Breeden, and the video will be posted shortly.

Among the topics we discussed:

  • Sheldrake's vertical featured semi-dry riesling, not dry riesling. Why? Which style does Dave prefer to lay down?
  • Are we, as a wine community, too concerned that a bottle will pass its mythical "peak?" How can you tell when peak is approaching?
  • How did the Sheldrake wines show?

Because this is my first vlog, I'm not certain how it will turn out, but we'll soon see.
