Wine Columnist from Every Day With Rachael Ray Appearing at DC Food and Wine Festival

Every Day with Rachael Ray includes a great column each issue on wine that is both non-intimidating and informative. It is written by Mark Oldman, who is also the author of the best-selling Oldman's Guide to Outsmarting Wine. So, once again, I jealous of all of you East Coasters because Oldman will be appearing at the Washington D.C. Wine and Food on June 24th and 25th at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington, D.C. and will be teaching a seminar at the event. Darn you! But I have better weather in CA!

I would say I am an intermediate cook (thanks to RR), but I am certainly a novice at picking wine. My general guidelines are as follows: (1) What's on sale?, (2) What bottle offers the largest amount of dollars off for the highest quality wine?, (3) Do I recognize the type of wine?, (4) Have I visted the winery? (Napa is about one hour from my house), and finally, (5) Is the label on the bottle cool? All of this is sad but true, but I am committed to learning. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, no? With the help of Mr. Oldman, hopefully I am on my way.
