I had the pleasure of meeting some of the greatest food and wine speakers this past weekend at the Aspen Food and Wine Festival.
This amazing event takes please every year in the beautiful, quaint ski town of Aspen which sits approximately 8,000 feet above sea level against the green backdrop of Ajax Mountain. The main event, The Grand Tasting, is always at the giant white tent where 5,000 festival-goers sample as many wines as possible over the weekend.
Another favorite of mine was Leslie Sbrocco, know for her entertaining and enthusiastic approach to wine and food. She is the founder of the multi-media company ThirstyGirl.com Her motto is "Life....Drink It Up!" She is a regular guest on "The Today Show" and is the host and judge of the PBS series' "Check Please!" and "The Winemakers." She spoke about the NEW New Zealand wines as well as Women In Wine: Napa's Next Generation.
