Strictly speaking, you could maintain and maybe lose weight this holiday season by keeping to a diet of wine only. Average calories per a 5 ounce glass of wine are from 105 to 120. For argument sakes, let’s say that you can maintain your weight with an intake of 2,500 calories a day. Hey, that’s real easy math! That means you can have somewhere around 20 to 24 glasses a wine a day. A couple of caveats with this thought process.
Here at winefestnews.com we have decided to be the only wine related organization NOT to start a wine club. Let’s see – do you really know of any major organization that does NOT have a wine club. It seems like if you are in the print business you, mandatorily, must start a wine club.
Only a small percentage of visitors to the San Francisco area actually get a change to drive up to Napa and Sonoma or down to the Carmel Valley or even further down to the Central Coast to taste some liquid grape fruit; aka wine. They are probably not on holiday and have to run into the area on business, but they still enjoy exploring wine. What to do? Well, seems like this area is the first to push the yardarm and bring the experience to the city and therefore to you.

Wine Tasting Room of the Month
In 1974, Landmark Vineyards was founded in the Windsor area of Sonoma County by Damaris Deere Ford, the great, great granddaughter of John Deere (the farm equipment mogul). In 1989, she relocated the winery to Sonoma Valley, just off Highway 12 (which connects the City of Sonoma with Santa Rosa) near Kenwood. Shortly thereafter, she convinced her son, Michael Deere Colhoun and his wife, Mary, to leave New York City to join her as partners in the winery. She has long since retired and they have assumed full control; now aided by their own daughter, also named Damaris.

Joke of the Month
Two men went into a bar and had several glasses of wine. After the awhile the one said to the other, “Since you went away to college I’ve been having a lot of sex with your mother!” The second guy responded, “I think you had enough wine, Dad!”

Sorry to say, but this really concludes real wine festival for the year.
This is not a factoid, but inquiring minds wish to know………Has anybody taking the leap and brought a bottle into a bar/restaurant for happy hour and were just tickled to pay the corkage fee? At $14 for a glass of wine at happy hour when we know it is a $20 bottle of wine at the local store, someone has got to try this out!
So from the desk of the writer, editor, janitor and all around gopher, please remember that we’re not aging, we’re fermenting……R U Syrious
