(2)Mile High Club


Question of the day:  Where is the most remote location in which you have sipped a glass of grapey goodness?
Bonus question: Do you recall the wine you enjoyed in your own personal Timbuktu?


Yours truly sipping a little Fiano di Avellino (Feudi di San Gregorio Fiano di Avellino 2003, ~$20; imported by Leo LoCasio/Winebow) at Maybird Lakes.  A creamy white wine from Campania - Italy's shin.  This wine is made from the Fiano grape and is full of floral scents and tangy grapefruit & nectarine flavors.  The perfect refreshment during a break along this 7.5 mile hike with a 2,000' elevation gain.


A cloud halo around the Pfeifferhorn - an 11,000' peak along the Wasatch front.

I got to experience one of the worst wines ever - Gato Negro, courtesy of my Quechuan guides while making the trek to Machu Picchu.
But it tasted great at just under 14,000 feet.


I imagine one glass at 14k' would go straight to your head!
