It has been a long time since I have posted here. Not that we stopped traveling; I just stopped posting. But it is time to start up again, especially after our recent week in Milan for a conference on sustainability and sensory analysis in the wine industry and an enormous trade show on wine bottling and production.

Site of the conference and trade show
Hey, Tacoma people! Does this look familiar?
It is the Stella Polare Congress Center.
