Here we are! It’s prime WBC Scholarship season, and we couldn’t do it without you. For those that have supported our Scholarship in the past, we salute you.
After 7 Wine Bloggers Conferences, and six successful Scholarship years, we have learned a lot. One thing we have learned is that hotels have pretty sad hospitality glasses for big tastings. While I understand that it’s hard to have 300+ Riedels or other glasses on hand for these large tastings, I also know that as a wine professional and wine lover, I demand a certain level of stemware when I’m tasting wine and evaluating them. The hotel glass is something of a curse at these conferences, and after hearing many comments (and seeing it, as well as my own thoughts) about the lack of appropriate stemware, we have decided to offer a new fundraising feature this year.
For the fisrt time, we have WBC Scholarship logo glasses available for sale for $5, and as a thank you gift (think PBS Pledge Break) for anyone who donates over $50.
So get to it!
