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.

Merry Christmas

There is wine a small "wine country" here in Idaho.

Arnold likes Gruner Veltliner wine. It is a white wine that comes from his homeland, Austria. Call it "groovie" for short. This varietal is widely planted in Austria and has been described as complex. I had some recently in Healdsburg and it was an easy-drinking white.

As my friend Mark asked, what's up with the bears eating the grapes in Northern Napa County? I think it was Pope Valley. I'll have to investigate the purported events as I recover from the Christmas holiday back in Napa (stuck in the Boise airport at the moment). Looking forward to new year's eve and a visit to San Jose and Ridge winery, maybe. C'mon 2006.
