My love for wine began several years on a friends back porch. Eager to share her love of wine with me, I approached with trepidation as I knew nothing about wine. Fast forward some 15 years later and my love for wine has grown into a passion for wine.
Road trips and vacation destinations are a venue for me to explore new wineries and taste some magnificent regional wines. Most travel destinations these days mandate travel by car, no matter how far away, so that I can bring home my new found treasures to share with friends and family. My husband will tell you that when packing up the car for a trip, its a must to leave room for the several cases of wine that will accompany us home.
I realized a few years ago that friends would ask me questions as to what wine I would recommend for a particular occasion. I've been known to share my passion with co-workers, friends, acquaintances, and even complete strangers on an evening out. The satisfied look on their faces as they enjoyed the nectar of the vine is always a joyous thing for me.
To be able to reach beyond those with whom I have a personal relationship with and share my passion for wine with anyone seeking a bit of knowledge on the subject is very exciting. I don't pretend to know everything about wine but i will gladly share with you my experiences and what I have learned thus far in a fun and inviting manner in hopes that you, the reader, will gladly do the same.
“Wine makes daily living easier, less hurried, with fewer tensions and more tolerance.”-Benjamin Franklin
