Happy Birthday, Dad.



My dad has been truly interested in learning more about wine ever since I started working in the industry. He's definitely come a long way from the occasional CA trophy wines and magnums of Concha y Toro that I remember from my youth. Now, my dad enjoys Gruner Veltliner, Spanish reds, and nearly any other well-made, interesting wines you throw his way. Except for Greek whites and the ever challenging, oxidative whites of the Jura.

So dad, thank you for your continuing love and support. Enjoy your birthday - and drink well tonight! Love, Joe.

Well, happy birthday to Mr. M! And just sneak in a nice assyrtiko into a sequence of crunchy Veltliners... You'll see, he'll suddenly get Greek wine.
