I haven’t been on a vacation in over 3 years, and the last time was a quick Las Vegas sojourn for my birthday which of course was truly wonderful.
So yes, I am as giddy as could be with my counting down the sleeps! So much to get ready and to plan still.
Do I book my train trips ahead of time, do I wait? Do I have my brief Amsterdam trip planned out well enough, is there enough time? With my mind revving at full speed and still 2 more work days to go, plus packing I need to chill.
Also, it was cold enough to harvest icewine at a few of the local wineries! That is still on my wine bucket list to accomplish, but there is time enough for that.

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.
