Boom Varietal: Bend Film Festival

Off to beautiful Central Oregon to see the premier of this documentary about Mendoza Malbec and more (link above). Looking forward to meeting a Canadian who owns a vineyard just down the lane from where our vineyard was. Is. Some other poor schmuck owns it now. You can read the details in my book, Malbec Diaries, or a more fanciful version in my novel Retired to Death. Here we are in 2008, standing in our frost-damaged vineyard. The guy who managed it never bothered to tell us about the frost and the loss of our crop for an entire year. He’s in that movie too. Grrr.
