I just noticed something today (I know, call me slow) on the Taste Walla Walla website that I find highly disturbing and whomever decided to put this up is really out of touch with what’s going on:
Attire: Attire for this event is business casual.
What the heck is that all about? It’s no wonder why so many folks think of wine being snobby with crap like that going on. Why would they put up a dress code for a wine tasting – seriously – this is jacked up.
Additionally, someone OBVIOUSLY didn’t give this memo to some of the winemakers (most of whom, in fact) – *cough* Charles Smith *cough*. There is one thing I do like about ol’ Charlie and that is the obvious fact that he has NOT been institutionalized by the wine snobs.
* Note to the folks at the Walla Walla Valley Wine Alliance: “If you want to attract the new wave of upcoming wine drinkers, then PLEASE STOP with this kind of stuff”.
