hi powell. my wine trip to the bay area is only a week away. i'll be flying into SFO next thursday (8/18) afternoon, and will be in napa/sonoma through the morning of wed. 8/23, when i hit the road up into oregon. it would be great to meet up with you and some other forumites to share a few bottles (as you mentioned in a post a few month's back). will you be in town? wineries on my short list to try to set up visits to are neal, pine ridge, del dotto, shafer, phelps, swanson, pride, viader and hess. well, let me know if we can work something out.
