    By the way, former Googler and now skilled sommelier Lisa Rhorer will be one of the judges at the event. She’s co-owner of the new Cin-Cin Wine Bar in Los Gatos. You can read about her at http://www.foodgal.com/2008/05/take-five-with-lisa-rhorer-of-the-new-cin-cin-winebar/; it’s the Take Five Q&A I did with her.
