Tracey signed me up to speak at an event in San Francisco. The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation’s oldest and largest public affairs forum. When we lived in the city, we were members enjoying everything from a seminar on magnetic feng shui to a speech by the president of Rwanda. Hope to see you there.
URBAN WINERIES: THE NEW FRONTIER
A not-so-new kid on the block may be challenging the North Bay’s status as Northern California’s pre-eminent source for wine. Soon “wine country” may be no more than a short BART ride away. People have been making wine in the rolling hills of the East Bay since the 1970s, but it wasn’t until 2006 that 12 of them banded together to form the East Bay Vintners Alliance. Taste award-winning wines and hear what it’s like to produce them in a busy urban environment.
