Duckhorn Wine Company expands its Decoy program

“

In the premium wine sector, Decoy

by Duckhorn has always offered the critical price/ value equation for our guest. They have figured out how to make a wine that is compelling in the three areas that our guests demand. Quality, Price and Image. I give kudo's to Duckhorn for making incredible wines in this price sector. The wine always delivers no matter what the vintage. They could easily sell them for double.

Consider some of these factors and lousy experience. Here is another example that is actually mostly (somewhat) true: then depreciate accordingly: • Who picked up the check? Really expensive wine is always vastly more enjoyable, smoother, and more delicious to me when someone else pays. • Did you like the people you were with? Criticizing people is even more popular than criticizing wine! • Did you have it by yourself and not like yourself at that particular time or, possibly, not like the fact that you were alone with your wonderful bottle? Deduct, deduct, deduct. • How was the food? Was there enough food? Was the food the right color and size for the wine? Did the wine stand up to the food? • Was the music or sound level in the restaurant appropriate?

Beringer White Zinfandel Score: 85 points by the GOWD system (35 points for the wine, 50 bonus points for the experience). Tasted in my hot tub after band practice when I lived in a little house in the vineyards in Rutherford, CA. The singer agreed to come over to my place for a relaxing hot tub and told me she loved White Zinfandel and drinking it made her do crazy things. Wine notes: 35 points for getting the job done and who the hell cares what it tasted like! I remember that my date LOVED it! It was lightly pink and so was I.

After attending this event, it became clear to me that any hotel or fine dining restaurant chain that does not participate in SWE is missing the boat. I urge you to visit their website, www.societyofwineeducators.org, and become an active member.

“The mission of the Society of Wine Educators is to advance wine and spirits education through professional development and certification.” Eureka! Next year the conference will be at the San Mateo Marriott in California, so mark your calendar for July 25-27, 2012 and join the SWE’s 36th annual conference and wine education event. It is an enriching experience not to be missed.
