Bev Mo Cellarmaster and wine whiz Wilfred Wong was kind enough to shoot me an email on his way to France, where he will spend weeks sampling new vintages. I’ll post his correspondences here. If you have any questions for him, send them my way and I’ll pass them on to him.

Hi Jessica,

I should be sleeping now while on this jumbo 747 with over
400 people on it as we fly over the Atlantic. Embarking on another journey to Bordeaux to taste the new wines out of barrel (this year marks my 11th consecutive year). The plan is to taste over 400 wines from the highly touted 2005 Bordeaux vintage. The wine world has already been buzzing for months on how well all the red grapes ripened in the entire region.
Only a day away from tasting what could be the vintage of a
lifetime.
Cheers,
Wilfred

    Hi Jessica,
    It’s been a while, let’s get together and taste some wines. If you like, I could put toghether an intense yet fun and very instructive tasting that everyone learns from. I’ll include some top industry folks.
    Cheers,
    Wilfred

    Sounds great Wilfred. I had some excellent boutique Sonoma Pinots over the weekend we need to discuss, as well as a profile on you for the paper. I think it’s time. Talk to you soon!
    Cheers,
    Jessica

    Dear Jessica Yadegaran…In 1980 I started Vichon Winery. Sold and moved on. Among other things, I teach in Vit & Winery Tech at Napa Valley College. I’d like to talk with Wilfred Wong. At Ashbury Mkt he was a big supporter. Can you ask him to send me an e-mail? Thank you.
