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 (International Sommelier Guild) diploma, WSET Certification, and I strive to learn all I can. I am also taking my WSET Diploma with a future 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.
