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.

Another Day, Another Job

Ok, so there's this place called Cru which is one of the hottest restaurants in New York right now, with a wine "portfolio" of more than 60,000 selections, rated one of the best new restaurants, and and and I just couldn't help myself. What was I supposed to do? It happened so fast. My new friend turned me onto it, resume came flying out and next thing you know I was shaking hands to a "Welcome to the team." I start tomorrow as a hostess. I hope this doesn't turn into an addiction. What do I do about Crush?

Harvest time for grapes and me is about the same this year. Bud break happens in spring, around the time I settled in NY, then flowers appear. The flowers will turn into baby berries and after they spend time in the summer sun, will be picked as soon as August though the end of October. Approx. 120 days. I can't wait for my brain to be ripe when school is done in August. I've been thinking about working the harvest somewhere, picking grapes and sleeping in a barn.

It's warm today, so I think I'll have a Riesling from Alsace (hang in there, France is almost over and we'll be drinking the Italian reds when it's nice, hot and humid outside), Francois Baur, 2000
