About me

My love affair with wine started nearly twenty years ago, when my parents started seriously talking about moving to California and working in the wine biz.  I knew it had to be something exciting that would make them abandon their youngest and move 2,000 miles away. Or did it….

By the time I was about twenty-two I was intrigued.  So I did a little reading on the subject, sniffed around and like most twenty-somethings, tried some white zin and cheap pinot grigio.  Needless to say, I couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about.  Then, after my first sip of really good CA Cab a short while later, I was hooked.  Then came Italian, French and Spanish wines and I was smitten.

Since then, I’ve worked as a server and wine steward in higher end restaurants and I’ve spent the last ten years in retail as a wine consultant and sales manager.  I have a lot of stories about my adventures in this industry.  Some of the better ones I will share on this blog.  But mostly I just like to talk about wine.
