What am I doing… NOW?

Both links come 100% recommended by me to listen/read.
And while this isn’t in true “Now Page” fashion, I decided to start my own Denise Gardner NOW page. The goal: keep YOU informed in real time of all the cool things I’m working on as I unfold Denise Gardner Winemaking.
No fluff. No social media. Just now.
Working out of my office in Southeast PA.
I’m back from the ASEV-ES 2018 Conference, the IFT Conference, and a week of family vacation in Sea Isle City (NJ).
I found the most amazing wine bar/wine cellar experience in Chicago: Francesca’s, which is located in the basement of Disotto Enoteca. They do not have regular hours, and we were lucky to get in there to share a bottle of Valpolicella over a number of Italian dishes. Absolutely delightful. I recommend.
I just attended the MD Wine Summit, which was held at Chateau Bu-De Winery. What gorgeous views! What a lovely facility! What great wines!
In the final month of finishing up FDA compliance documentation for several of my clients.
This week ahead, I’ll be taking an introductory “how to Podcast” course… maybe you’ll hear more from me in the near future.
I’m currently scheduling harvest check-ins with clients. These are conference call or video sessions in which I “meet” with clients regularly to proactively make sure things are going alright through the thick of chaos.
Also keep an eye on Instagram to follow some fun production education I’ll start.
I spent a whole week in Sea Isle City, NJ with my family. It was the first family vacation since 2012. While we endured several days of extended rainfall and cloud cover, it felt good to feel the sand between my toes, listen to the crashing waves, and finish reading a few books. It’s always good to take a small pause before harvest season rolls around.
This trip to the beach left me missing fresh seafood paired with lovely, local aromatic white wines in the last days of summer…
In the weeks ahead, I’m attending a friend’s wedding and our little pup has to get surgery. I’m hopeful working from “home base” will allow me to tend to him during his recovery period and that he’ll be on the mend in no time.
