Special guests for Wednesday's virtual wine tasting

While we're getting our stemware ready for Wednesday's virtual wine tasting, I'm happy to announce some notable wine folks who will be in the mix and sharing their tasting notes. And they will be:

Mike Dunne,
the Bee's former food and wine editor and current author of the blog "A Year in Wine"

Michael Chandler, wine director for The Market at Pavilions; many of you may remember Michael from his longtime stint as a sommelier and manager at Enotria.

Leon Moore,
a recently certified sommelier who can be found serving at Red Lotus when he's not teaching music or organizing tastings; he's a cool young guy with a serious palate.

So here's the drill: log on to at 6 p.m. Wednesday, and we'll taste three bottles together as an online community.
