One of the fun perks of my job is getting to go to events like the 2016 Discover California Wines Annual Tasting, which is hosted by the California Wine Institute. I had the chance today to sample excellent red and white wines from America’s biggest wine producing state and learned a great deal about the complexities of wine. I tasted Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, and Chardonnay. It was a treat – even for someone like me who is not an expert on wine. I urge you to taste some of these fine U.S. products. Gan Bei!...km
“Development drives, but does not determine health... we see countries that have improved far faster than can be explained by income, education or fertility. And we also continue to see countries – including the United States – that are far less healthy than they should be given their resources.”
