Can a wine tasting signal better economic times ahead?


So here's some good news: The turnout for the Henrietta Weill Child Guidance Center's charity wine tasting was so bad last year that they almost decided not to do it again. But Foundation president Shai Gordon had other ideas and decided to give it another go. And thank goodness he did. The Third Annual Wine Tasting (held last Friday) drew a robust turnout of 90 wine lovers, more than twice last year's turnout. One of the wines featured was Sextant Wines (see their website here), owned and operated by Bakersfield residents Craig and Nancy Stoller. Could this be a harbinger of better economic times to come? Let's hope so. Glenn Hammett and his daughter Clarice, fresh back from a stint in the Peace Corps in Africa, are shown in the photo.

Where was it held? Is that the Guild HOuse? I totally would have gone had I'd known about it! And isn't Clarice too young to be tasting wine? Who lets these kids get so old while I'm not looking!!?

Lois,
I will be sure that you get an invitation next year, though I took you for more of a beer drinker.
Clarice is 24. Ouch.
