Dan Martino –
Dinner last Saturday with the ’06 Pinot was a great celebration of a pretty cool thing that happened in my life. The whole story is on my Facebook page but the readers digest version is this…my first guitar (bought in 1968), the guitar I learned to play on and wrote my first songs on was destroyed in 1971. It sat in pieces in closets for over 50 years. I recently found a luthier (stringed instrument craftsman) who was actually able to resurrect the instrument. That’s what we toasted with your incredible Pinot…as worthy a wine as I could imagine for the occasion. I’ve attached a few pics.

Good Life Destinations
Since roughly 2008, my wife Carol and I have been operating a travel website called Good Life Destinations. We chronicle our travels and other experiences including a “column” I write called “Kindred Spirits” where I talk about wine, beer, single malts and other potables. I intend to do a feature on your ’06 Pinot which will include some of the guitar repair story.
I look forward to tasting more Panther Creek wines!
