I started and helped build and auction a 6,000 bottle wine cellar of rare and fine 19th and 20th century 1st Growth Bordeauxs, Grand Cru Burgundies, German Rieslings, Vintage Ports and California Cabs (among other fabulous things). Now I’m a Certified Sommelier, member of the Guild of Sommeliers (USA) and WSET Advanced Certified. For me, there is no separating food and wine, wine and friends, wine and life. I love listening to people tell stories about their lives, intertwining their love of wine, food, and travel. I look forward to reading your comments and responding to them.
