Can't make it to Paso Robles for Hospice du Rhone? Attend Virtually-Details Inside

In a few hours I hit the road to Paso Robles, for the 19th Hospice du Rhone a mecca of education & tastings of Rhone Producers all over the world. (See: A Rhone Event Like No Other – Hospice du Rhone April 29-30 Paso Robles (OR – The French are Coming!)

Coming along with me are the ‘tools of my trade’ as a wine writer for live coverage.

  • Netbook (way faster to take/tweet Tasting notes, and software tools on a PC are much better than a smartphone
  • Laptop (most for the IRL job emergencies)
  • iPhone 4 – for immediate upload of pics, and tasting notes during the walk around tastings, and the AWESOME iRhone how to buy viagra in budapest iPhone app.
  • Verizon Mifi – Portable Internet for the Netbook, and iPad, iPhone when AT&T conks out
  • iPad 3G – not sure I will actually use, but I always schlep it so I feel like I bought it for a good reason.
  • new DLSR camera (still don’t know how to use properly. )
  • Messenger bag to place all said items and stuff in goodies, literature, and energy bars.
  • wine stems, wine, and microbrew (need I explain?)
