Pairing Wine With My Life's Adventure

REINVENTION: Quit my job in IT, sold my house and moved from Cal to NYC for sommelier classes. GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY: Moved to Napa and worked in a vineyard making wine. TRAVEL: Through France and Italy on a wine scavenger hunt. Sto cambiando la mia vita e desidero imparare circa vino. Je change ma vie et je veux me renseigner sur le vin. TRY TO GET SERIOUS: Living in New York for 4 years and working as a Sommelier. NEW GOALS: Do my own thing, find love, speak Spanish, live wine.

food and wine

Great service and beautiful food at Amavi near the Plaza in Santa Fe. Wine list is solid and pear martinis are delish. Nice to see the town busy this weekend. Pranzo next to the Railyard has a great happy hour and nice new additions to the wine list, huge bar.

Right now I'm a recovering New Yorker

WINO in NYC is now in Santa Fe...

pack stuff, move stuff, trash stuff, buy more stuff. this time i'm going to keep the stuff

I've traveled quite a distance and have a better sense of what's important. It's more economical here, one drink is like 3 with this altitude. Did you know that Santa Fe is the highest capitol city in the US? This is the Land of Enchantment and the territory for cheap and good margaritas. It's like heaven. Why aren't more people here?

I'm going to miss the team at Le B: Sunshine, the champion, 440, Mr. Large, Grandma and French Fry

DATELINE: Santa Fe, NM 2010 - I've moved and changed my life. I'm happy and I'm astounded. I can see so many stars in the night sky. It seems time is going by so fast and I've no time to post and tell you about all the great things... check back because I will write about them. I'm thinking of you...
