Sarah Pailin, is that you?
Sarah Pailin, is that you?

So let's start 2010's wine news and trends Friday post with the most laughable wine headline of the year to date: Sarah Palin is speaking at this year's Wine & Spirits Wholesalers of America (WSWA) conference. I usually try to avoid judging too harshly in this blog - but really? REALLY? Come on.... If you're planning on attending this annual event, I beg you to report back here after. Better yet, make sure you have a glass of wine in hand while you listen. You're going to need it! Silicon Valley's Jessica Yadegaran has a better idea... giving her opinion on what's sure to be a hit in 2010. Check out her article on wine trends and see if you concur!

Last but not least, a man after my own heart, Dr. Vino has gotten to the heart of the matter with his recent post on appropriate wine pairings to enjoy the last of football season - with 7 Layer Dip (um, Albarino people!). See what others suggest here!

What would you rather do: get Sarah's opinion on the trade or taste test the best pairing with 7 Layer Dip?
