Nerd Conference

SWE LogoThe Society of Wine Educators is holding this year’s annual conference in Sacramento, CA from July 27 – Aug 1 and yours truly will be in attendance.  I’m calling it a nerd conference because each day is jammed packed with seminar after seminar and also because one of my wine-nerd heroes, Jancis Robinson, is giving the keynote address.  I’ll be taking a spirits exam and attending classes on everything from sustainability in winemaking to “the truth about wine and cheese” to “can absinthe cause insanity?” to a 3 hour class on sake.  Keep reading and I’ll fill you in on all the good stuff I learn out there.

You don’t have to be a member of SWE to attend, but you might have to be a nerd.
