006|365 Burgess Merlot

I headed out to Palm Spring to deliver the keynote speech at the Essilor National Sales Meeting with Lynn. It was a whirlwind 48 hours - I left my house on Tuesday at 3:00am and walked back in the door at 3:00am on Thursday. Fun.

Seriously though, it was a great trip. We arrived without incident and went right into dress rehearsal. Of course there were tweaks to the deck and the production company just loved that! Not. After rehearsals Lynn and I went to dinner - enter Burgess.

I was stumped as to what my picture for the day was going to be. I had taken some safeties from the flight - you can see them here, or here, or here. But then we went to dinner and when I saw Burgess on the wine list it was a done deal. I had taken a trip to to Napa with a friend last spring and visited several wineries. When we were almost done we decided to visit one more winery that neither of us had ever heard of. We closed our eyes, pointed at the map, and ended up with Burgess. It was the best visit of the day - so much fun that I wrote about it on my work blog.

So, cheers to Burgess.

  1. I was wondering where the daily posts went...but I figured you'd either catch up after, or pre-write the posts and time out the posting. (Something I *still* can't manage to do.)

    Love the aerial shots. The one of the train's my fave - totally the heartbeat of America. :-)
