If the buzz in the cyber ether during Saturday's Nomacorc-Colorado Twitter Taste-off was any indication, this was the most successful event in DrinkLocalWine's four-year history. Which is saying something, since the first three events went pretty well, too.
Those of us who believe in drinking local sometimes despair that our message is getting through, probably because we're too close to the subject to have enough perspective. We got plenty of perspective this weekend. As several panelists and speakers noted, drink local is firmly part of eat local, and the local movement is closer than ever to going mainstream.
Which brings a smile to even the Wine Curmudgeon's face.
