Ranking blending options with small vineyard owners on a recent trip to California.

From slamming Arbor Mist with ice cubes in college to barrel tasting at Domaine Romanée-Conti in Burgundy, this has been quite the journey and its no where near finished! Whether exploring new wine or new wine regions, taking other wine lovers on amazing trips, connecting incredible small wineries with buyers in the local area, or running small, education-focused tastings, life is good! And 2020 is teed up to be another stellar year! I'm finally opening my own tasting and education space in February, plotting some amazing trips and tours and hell bent on running a half marathon before I'm 40. My life motto is why not...or vin chaud if your English and my French ever collide! Come see what we're up to and discover the world with us, one glass at a time!
