One of your first thoughts when talking to a fellow attendee friend on what to pack for the wine bloggers conference, was glassware.
Having relocated back to the Okanagan from Vancouver with only a few things, I had brought some kitchen equipment, glassware, musical instruments, art, plants, my favourite book series, and some clothes and shoes.
So I got to thinking…… Riedel Champagne flutes for that special occasion. Vinum Extreme for that special Pinot Noir. Perhaps an all purpose glass was needed, or maybe just my tasting glass. Maybe I should just focus more on what I am wearing.
(Then I realized that I am going to a wine bloggers conference. I think proper glassware is a pre-requisite.)
So packing aside, my suitcase
(car) may just be carrying a few boxes of glassware as well.
Because, you never know.
WBC, I am ready for you!

In wine there is truth. This blog is about my own musings, from the very beginnings....
In my very first wine experience, I did not even like the smell of wine. I loved the tanks, hoses, and barrels but plugged my nose while walking around the winery. In reality, this wine ninja was all of 5 years of age and had many years to go before falling under the allure of wine.
Flash forward a few years, I was culinary bound, learning about flavours, origins and the land and then discovered the concept of Wine pairings. My mind was blown :O! I needed to learn all I could, so I took a chance and applied at 3 wineries. I started at my first choice one on an entry level position, but I have never looked back. I grew with the winery, experiencing different aspects and later growing with the company in management in all aspects of retail and also in sales.
Though I have done schooling for other things artistic in nature, I have always circled back to wine, the siren to my career. I have my ISG diploma, are WSET Certified and strive to learn all I can, taking my WSET Diploma with a goal in sight.
This is a place where I will share my true impressions, experiences, tastings, recipes (gluten free as I am a celiac), and thoughts not of anyone else.
In vino veritas, the quest for knowledge never ends.
