Pulling the cork…

Wine lover.  Oenophile.  Wanna-be-sommelier.

Mom.  Mommy.  MA-MAAAAA!!!!!!

Grocery shopper, budding nutritionist, dish scrubber, meat cutter.

My love of wine started in my mid-twenties.  I have no formal training, just a decent palate and a desire to learn.  And I am pretty good in the kitchen.  The more I learn, the greater the desire to educate myself through articles, blogs, travel, and surrounding myself with others who like to discuss wine.  When things calm down (what’s that?) in my life, I may choose a formal education in the arena, but for now, I will taste, share, and taste some more.  My descriptors may or may not be “correct.”  My pairings  may wow, surprise, or may not “work.”  But, the best learning is through trial and error, right?  Especially when the “trial” means drinking more wine.  So, if you are up for a little wisdom about wine, and a lot of wine-inspired wisdom, come along for the ride.

Being a stay- at-home mom can leave one thirsting for a taste of the outside world, a world in which sentences are composed of more than three words. Being an educator means one is always seeking an opportunity to explore and learn. Being a woman with a need to connect can be a challenge when adult conversations are rare. In wine, I find the marriage of art and science, agriculture and storytelling provides limitless areas to explore. But it is the people that keep me engaged. The tenacity needed to keep the family dream alive, the risk to start anew, the trials and principles. I love the history of the vine, the impact of a season, the sentiment in the bottle. That is why I write. I write to tell their stories, to share a piece of mine. I write to learn as I teach others. I write to connect with new friends, to disconnect from the world. I write to celebrate what makes each of us unique, and that which ties us together.
