At the dawn of the Kennedy administration, when Barbara Lett-Simmons came to Washington, she learned that a home in the seat of democracy didn't guarantee a say in your own destiny. Things were better for people like her than in the little Southern towns where her husband traveled in his job reorganizing the U.S. Postal Service - places where he wasn't even welcome to stay overnight. In the district, blacks had good jobs. They worked for the government. They lived in a majority black city.

There's something about pinot noir that brings out the romantic in David Lett."Pinot noir should be feminine, delicate, silky, complex," he rhapsodizes as we sit and sip his wines. "It's the kind of woman you want to make love with."It seems like an odd relationship between man and grape, but it's been going on for more than 25 years now. The affair has lasted ever since Mr. Lett, then a fresh-faced 25-year-old, loaded up his truck with vine cuttings and headed up the highway from California to Oregon, which he'd never visited, to test a wild theory that the state's Willamette Valley could produce America's greatest Burgundy-style wines.

Wine, food, music and shopping drew about 7,700 visitors to the 11th annual Wine in the Woods Festival in Columbia over the weekend, amid gray skies and muddy ground. Attendance was down by several thousand compared with previous years, but the people who did venture out were ready to enjoy themselves, said Barbara Lett, special events supervisor for the Howard County Department of Recreation and Parks. "It was cold and wet, and there was some whining in the woods this year," she said yesterday.

Despite wet, cool weather and competition from Pimlico Race Course's Preakness bash, the 10th Wine in the Woods outdoor festival in Columbia during the weekend drew about 12,000 people - 1,000 more than last year, organizers said yesterday. "People come no matter what the weather. It's really amazing to me," event supervisor Barbara Lett said. "They come dressed in layers and bring tarps and chairs; they're totally prepared." On the surface, the two-day festival's recipe was largely the same as that on Preakness' infield: entertainment, alcohol and food vendors.
