The schedule for the Taos Winter Wine Festival (Feb 1-4)
has just been posted:

The Seminars on Sat should be particularly good. RobertSinskey & Steve Matthiasson discussing their wines and Morgan Twain-Peterson & Jake Bilbro presenting their Zin/Syrah.
Though he's not listed, KurtBeitler of Boheme is supposed to be there as well.
Dave Gates will be presenting Ridge MonteBello on a Fri Seminar.
I'll be there on Sat. Easy to recognize...goofy looks, ears that stick out, bright red spitoon.
The skiing?? Too early to predict.
