    Thanks for all the great interviews. I was not able to attend this year but you made me feel like I was part of the event.

    After hearing all that went on I will be sure to attend next year.

    It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it. :-}
    The hard part is to put the tasting on the back urner until the interviews are completed.
