Wine and Friendship

Rebecca Shouldis and Thibaud Mandet
For many years I have enjoyed Oregon wines from all over the state and have been in over 250 tasting rooms. Meeting wine lovers in all walks of life and in all corners of Oregon has given me a great deal of pleasure and I have made some wonderful and lasting friendships.

 I am going to start asking wine lovers what wines they most enjoy and for their most romantic experience evolving tasting great wines. Did they meet their love? Did they find a friend?

Money in a Bottle

During my show at the Coos Art Museum (April 18-June 28) this jar will be in a glass box below the painting. At the end of the show, someone will break the jar. It will be put up on YouTube and they get what is inside the jar. $$$ . Tickets for a chance to break the jar are $5 and are available from the museum. You can enter and have someone break it for you and you get to keep what is inside.
