You’ve got to love a winemaker with a sense of humor. Here we have Pinotblogger Josh Hermsmeyer (of Russian River's Capozzi Winery) wearing the t-shirt I had made up and dared him to wear. (We were having a blog dialog about whether or not winemakers are going against their own palates to please wine critic Robert Parker, Jr. My comment was that I didn’t think all winemakers had become Parker’s bitches, whoring themselves out for high scores. I thought “Parker’s bitch” had a nice ring to it, and Josh agreed. Any other winemakers out there got the cojones?)
By the way, I recently interviewed Josh for an article about getting the most from your winery blog.
