Through a collection of varied posts, I share wine reviews, reflections from wine tastings, stories about winery visits, and pretty much anything that involves an opportunity to talk about wine. With every state and country to which I travel, I use that as an opportunity to learn about the history, terroir, and marriage of food and wine that define that region.
I truly believe that everyone has a different palate. Just because a wine critic is amazed by a particular wine doesn’t mean you have to love it, too. It’s really all about what YOU like. Our wine world is so expansive, so there is something for everyone. That being said, I do my best to present the style of the wine in a way that helps you determine if it is one that matches your palate profile. I welcome opposing opinions, dialog, and comments on any of these posts. To me, that is what makes wine so much fun! It’s all about good conversation created by different opinions, perspectives, and stories.
So what makes me qualified to write about wine? Pretty much the same thing that makes anyone else qualified to run a blog. Passion. Although my day job is about technology and data analytics, I have visited hundreds of wineries and I study and participate in as many learning opportunities as I can. I’m not an expert, and I don’t pretend to be. But, I do enough research to help provide what I hope is meaningful guidance.
I hope you you enjoy reading about these wine adventures as much as I have taken pleasure in writing about them. Thanks for visiting and participating in the journey!
