Sorry I haven’t written for almost a week. I’ve been deeply involved in Hugh Johnson’s autobiography, "A Life Uncorked." The preeminent British author of "The World Atlas of Wine" and "Hugh Johnson’s Wine Pocket Book" is coming to the Bay Area this weekend and I really think you should meet him and hear why he thinks wine should only be compared to music, not other wines.

Here are the details:
