Bottles Stories in a Wine Cellar


Bottles Stories in a Wine Cellar

06 April 2014

Apple-Touch-IconAA week ago Saturday night, Pam and Randy Selenak, Jerry Forbes and myself were invited to a cozy wine tasting in Webb Tartaglia’s wine cellar with his pretty lady friend, Jane. Web is pictured at the top of this post with a black cat that appeared even though the cellar door was closed. Hmmmmm.

This was after the wonderful Morro Bay Bottle Show put on by the San Luis Obispo Bottle Society. Webb is an extraordinary man and this was one evening that I will never forget. Very spiritual and fun. Kind of like telling stories around a camp fire. Historically, each guest over time, hammers a quarter in to an overhead cellar beam. I guess to ward off black cat spells. The wine bottle pictured further below was signed by Willie Nelson.
