A Request for You to Take the Wheel

Greetings from Ivalo, Finland!

I'm nearly finished in northern Europe and about to return to Sicily to sort out the final details for part II of our Sicily LiveAway, happening in Cefalu, then heading over to the Amalfi Coast to finalize details for our 2-week LiveAway segment there (we've just put up the webinar registration for this program - you can find the link in your newsletter).

I've specifically fit in this trip Italy following member feedback from our recent poll on Italy, as both Sicily and Amalfi received among the most votes for future LiveAways from the community, and I think both programs are going to be a lot of fun.

Tuscany has cultural, artistic and historical opulence in a region which defines taste like no other.

An Update on Our Vaccine Policy

Greetings from Toronto!

I'm back on home soil for a few short weeks to sort out a few things to keep everything moving forward for our future programs, and to attempt to get caught up on member communications.

While reviewing our New Member Questionnaire, I came across several questions regarding vaccines and travelling with Wheel & Anchor.

Cork Or Plastic? The Science Of Stopping Your Wine

Cork Or Plastic? The Science Of Stopping Your Wine

Sometimes it really is the little things. It shouldn’t matter so much - but what would opening a bottle of wine be without that first “pop!” as the cork comes out, both comical & sophisticated, and always immensely satisfying?
