Comment ça a commencé

“Give me books, French wine, fruit, fine weather and a little music played out of doors by somebody I do not know.” ― John Keats

I came to wine as a second career about five years ago and have truly found my calling. I have created a niche for myself working in unique wine regions around the country (Texas Hill Country, historic Livermore, CA, and now Minnesota) and specialize in boutique, family-owned wineries. My love for wine goes beyond my career; it is truly my raison d'etre. As such, I love learning as much as I can about the ever-expanding world of wine – I have earned my WSET Diploma in Wines. The words "wine is life" have never been more true: it is my career, my hobby, and my passion. I love to share stories and swap bottle recommendations and hope this space becomes a fun and educational place for that. My bestie and I travel the world and seek out wine regions; expect to see highlights from our travels pop up here now and again. And last but definitely not least, my beloved black lab mix Cabbie (short for Cabernet, bien sur) will be making several appearances.
