Today a group of fellow wine makers from this forum met for the first time in Pittsburgh for lunch. First time thats for sure...a hamburger loaded with cole slaw, french fries, tomato, onion and who knows what else. But they said it was a Pittsburgh traditional sandwich so what the heck. Lots of great conversation and just an overall awesome time meeting everyone. After lunch in the parking lot we looked like a flea market passing around wines. Holy moly Steve brought a boat load (cool labels Steve). Not sure what the patrons on the patio eating were thinking but we got out of there about 5 minutes before the ATF Agents pulled in.



Left to right, Dan (Runningwolfe), Julie, Dave (Pittspur), Doug (FFEMT128), and Steve (djrockinsteve). Also not pictured is Steves wife and Julies husband.

Definately a good time. I can only imagine what everyone on the patio thought when we were in between 4 cars exchanging wine from the trunk of a car. Thanks everyone for the various wine. Can't wait to get a supply built up so I can contribute more.

36 days until the picnic.

this is the beginning of something.

How many other forums GET TOGETHER?

We might have to work something out with the Vermont/Mass/Conn. faction.

After the picnic we can all head to New Zealand. All I'd have to do is learn the lingo.

It was very nice to meet just a few fellow wine makers. I walked in a few minutes late and thought we need to get t-shirts with our avatar on them. The picnic will definitely be great but unfortunately we can't make this one.

Dan Marilyn and I will be heading your way in the not to distant future for a few wine tours. I'll let you know when as soon as we pick a day.

Thanks everyone for the wine. Hope mine live up to the anticipation.

Well, I am seeing more meetings in the future, Mike and I really enjoyed ourselves. Is anyone interested in visiting a local winery together?

We would be interested in a winery tour / get go gether depending on what's going on.

Well after the luncheon, and after I got home we opened up pittspur's Reisling. It we very refreshing and enjoyable. After the graduation we had people over to the house. We I have got to say, everyone enjoyed the wine. We finished off the Reisling, the Wild Cherry Pinot Noir, and we opened the Sangiovese.

Tomorrow is the grad party, hopefully the weather holds out.

When't the plane leave for New Zealand.

Nikki, I googled your location, I could walk there in 2 days and 16 hours. I'll pack a lunch. One day (maybe the picnic) we can have a huge get together. That may take a years planning.

The map is really cool and if you have time just browse it. As far as a name, the Wolf Pack. Dan could be the Grand Poo Pah. :) Maybe the WPWP (Western Pennsylvania Wolf Pack) :)
