As I write these words, my heart feels heavy of emotion. It has been almost 3 months that the Wine Bloggers Conference has been finished and I miss it a great deal. I have never participated in a conference before, and it was the first time that somebody took an interest in my persona before.
I had the chance to meet some extraordinary people at the conference. The WBC bloggers welcomed me with open arms and humility.It is very hard for me to write this post. My heart overflows with joy and sadness and it is so difficult to put words to describe this feeling.
So, this is the way that goes. A big thanks to Thea Dwelle and the scholarship comite to have selected me for the scholarship. I hope I lived to your expectations. Never in a million years, I would have thought that my work could be worthy of admiration by the WBC organizers. To this day, I still believe that is all a dream and have not wake up to face reality.
To each one of the sponsors, many thanks as well. I wish that I could be physically present to shake your hands. Thanks to your sponsorship, I was able to assist in one of the greatest events of the wine industry.
To each of the fellow wine bloggers that I meet on that weekend: Thanks as well for taking the time to hear my story. Had a chance to meet great personalities such as Von Vino, the great Dame Wine and Rick Dean. Let me not forget the execptional Michael Kelly, he was on my table for the Saturday closing supper meal and in the saturday after party. I could go forever, but wait..I cant also forget, the great Cindy Lowe Rynning. I have been an admirer of her work for some time now. For those who saw me at the after party on saturday, thanks too for partying together.
This is not the end but just the beginning. I will continue to write about the conference and I will see you soon in Walla Walla in 2018. I wish that time would pass faster to relieve the conference again.
See you soon colleagues
