A Certified Sommelier, a self-taught cook, and a wine collector since the 1970s. . . . .
My wife, Trish, and I have traveled the Northern Hemisphere sampling wines and cuisines in a variety of countries and regions.
My wine education began in Napa Valley in the early Seventies, before Napa and Sonoma became chic. None of today’s cult Cabernets existed then, and at least one major producer labeled his Chardonnay as Pinot Chardonnay. My wine collection now encompasses many countries and regions and the bottle count is in excess of 1,000.
Trish is a self-taught nutritionist and cook. Together, we hope to broaden your knowledge of foods, wines and fine pairings. We hope you enjoy our posts!
