svc-sb.jpg While opening a bottle of 2004 Sterling Sauvignon Blanc Vintner’s Collection a few nights ago — one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I’ve ever had; Sterling has long been one of my favorite vineyards — I couldn’t help but notice that Sterling and Vassar seem to employ the same design team for bottles and class rings. I just had to capture the moment (along with that delicious salad in the background).

My favorite story about my VC ring is from during the dot-com days in San Francisco when venture capital funding was all the rage and everyone had a business I was at a bar one night and holding a drink with my right hand. The guy next to me noticed my ring and excitedly asked, “Are you a venture capitalist?!” My answer shattered the glimmer of hope in his eyes, but maybe I should’ve said yes. For all I know, it could’ve been this guy.

Happy birthday to Neil, James, and Gabe M.!
