NECA’s Fall 2011 meeting on 15 September will be in a Canadian chateau winery, our friend Kathy H emails the Blog this morning.
With her own winning charm she writes: “As you are the doyenne of the world chemicals party, I thought I’d send along the latest from our beloved NECA. This year’s Canadian meeting is being held at a winery!”
With a sinking heart I open the attachment to see the photos of the Chateau du Charmes & Hillebrand Wineries. The event agenda looks pretty gruelling with an afternoon private wine tour at the first winery with a tasting and cocktail reception in the vineyard courtyard (sponsored by Williams), followed by another private wine tour and tasting at the second winery. Then there is a dinner with the option to have the winemaker’s pairing wine selection. It is indeed a tough life in the post-shalegas northeast chemical industry.
