Military Intelligence

On Friday, Joan and I were invited to pour our wines at the Fort Huachuca Military Intelligence Hall of Fame Induction Ball. It was a most extraordinary event. Hundreds of soldiers and their companions were dressed out in the most elaborate formal military uniforms, tuxedos and ball gowns. Captain Andrew Schuster, who was in charge of the event, and his wife Lisa stopped by. It was the first time ever that a local winery poured Arizona wine at this event and it was the brainchild of Captain Schuster. He had taken on the assignment of a reconnaissance mission some weeks earlier and after visiting our tasting room had chosen our 2008 Chardonnay and 2007 Syrah. It was a tough mission, but he managed. We’re glad he did and we look forward to next year.
