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.

my last crush

this harvest thing is harder than i thought. working lots of hours

2.4 lbs of grapes per bottle (approx napa yield)
740 lbs of grapes per 59 gallon barrel
a ton of grapes can fill up the bed of a standard pickup truck
this is my 4th week and we've pressed about 500 tons of grapes so far

i've racked (removal of large sediment) and filtered my right hand to death
tv (i got tv/cable back) has ruined me, 57 channels and nothing on. watching th oc for the first time... i prefer the peach pit
right hand is tingly, sleep with heating pad, hurts bad in the morning can't work clasp on bra
one of my housemates (out of 5) is a chef and he cooked us a great meal tuesday night
another collects shoes, he has more than 100 pairs
who's going to visit and take advantage of the newly-discovered inter-winery discount?
