Conference? Party? Same phrase? What?
Oh yes. The 5th Annual Wine Bloggers Conference (a.k.a Wine Bloggers Take Over Portland) is over and done with. *sad panda* But there were many lessons to be learned…new friends to make…run-ins with the law (check Tasting Room Confidential for that story, as I wasn’t on that bus, but did hear about it)…and most of all, a lot of wine to be consumed.
Some of the highlights of the conference were Randall Grahm’s opening keynote speech, the AMAZING dinner that King Estate provided on Saturday night and the opportunity to meet some of the movers, shakers and newcomers within not only the blogging community, but the wine community as a whole…even if it was a mere 5 minutes during the Speed Dating…errr…I mean, Live Wine Blogging sessions.
Keep an eye out for more in depth perspectives of the 2012 Wine Bloggers Conference…I, sadly, have to prepare for my return to the real world and my real life job (as this doesn’t pay the bills).
I will, however, tease you with a picture. 😀
