This Friday I bring to you something new, in my world of wine news and "events". I took myself to the Southern Cote du Rhone last week and had a blast! There is no better way to fully appreciate a region's special magic than seeing it, the land, the climate - the Mighty Mistral! - at work  for yourself; meeting the local winemakers who make your heart sing back in the states; and enjoying the local culture, cuisine and hospitality. I posted my web album et. al. over on Ball Square Fine Wines' blog earlier this week. Pop over to check it out!

Where are your wine travels taking you this year? Have you also been to the Southern Rhone?
