Skies are clear and daytime temperatures are in the 70s this week in Oregon's Willamette Valley. They have started picking Pinot Noir grapes, but the growers and winemakers are nervous.

I was checking my e-mail and drinking a cup of coffee at home this morning and guess who dropped by to leave some samples? Aldo and Franco Conterno. I am sure you know, but Aldo is one of the masters of Barolo at his winery, Aldo Conterno.
