To me, wine is so much more than simply what is inside the bottle. Wine has that quality where a novice can enjoy it and a seasoned taster can get lost in it’s depth and mystery. I also enjoy finding out the stories behind the wine. I have been fortunate to be able to interview some great people who happen to be wine makers. I enjoy being able to shine a little light on wines that you won’t find on your local wine shop’s shelves. I will continue to share their stories as I am able to do so.

In the Bible, Jesus’ first miracle was to turn water into wine. He did this at a wedding, a celebration of two people joining themselves together. I think there is a lesson in that. Wine is best enjoyed in the company of friends; friends coming together for a celebration or just to get together and enjoy each other’s company.

This blog is as much for me as for anyone else. I find that the best way for me to remember my wine experiences I need to write them down. I think each bottle has it’s own story to tell, and that even includes the bad ones. I just hope to convey some of the message that is contained inside the bottles of this wonderful elixir we call wine.

What will you find here? Wine, lots of wine. I am mostly a red drinker. My favorite go-to varietals are Zins, Cabs, Pinot’s and Syrah’s but I’m always open to finding that diamond in the rough. I do sample a good number of Chardonnay’s as this is my wife’s favorite wine.  I will share any wine travels and tasting room experiences. There will also be  a sprinkling of whiskey tastings as well. As the weather gets cooler I begin to reach for my bourbon.

I hope you find something you enjoy here. Cheers my friends!
