I’ve spent the last few days in Manzanita, on the Oregon coast, engaging in behavior that would probably be labeled as both gluttony and alcoholism were I to reveal the full extent of it. Nine guys, close to a hundred wines. I’m not entirely sure that the human body is intended to consume alcohol for 16 or 17 hours straight on multiple consecutive days.
I took plenty of photos this weekend, but these are two of my favorites—a post-prandial bottle of Huet Le Haut Lieu and a few of the wines from an evening’s dinner.
Perhaps my favorite photo—my friend Eric braving the elements at 2am to shuck more oysters for us. That’s devotion to gastronomy.
