The Wine Curmudgeon is supposed to be in suburban Washington over the weekend to judge white wines in the Virginia Governor's Cup competition. Coincidentally, so is Hurricane Irene. Or, as my pal Dave McIntrye said, "Look for viogniers with salinity."
The irony, of course, is that when I lived in Louisiana there were no hurricanes. So what happens when I go to judge wine? A hurricane, of course. Hopefully, Irene will stay well out to sea and not bother anyone. So, while I worry about that, here is John Fogerty's take on hurricanes, courtesy of kvs123 at YouTube.
