Dear readers, you asked for more wine coverage and you asked for more giveaways, thus we kill two stones with one bird. Tonight, Murano Restaurant hosts an intimate soiree for Kevin Judd, the chief winemaker from New Zealand's Cloudy Bay Vineyards. Judd will have plenty of Cloudy Bay sauvignon blanc on hand to taste, including the 2007 release, but he'll also have photographs from his "Colour of Wine" exhibit. The local spin: Proceeds from photo sales go to Heal the Bay.
For a chance to talk sauv blanc with a master, plus maybe schmooze with a local sommelier or two, the first 10 people to email with "wine love" in the subject line get access for you and a guest. Please note: The party starts at 5:30pm, and while there may be some light snacks at the event, Murano isn't doing a full spread. Plan accordingly.
