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.

Monday morning and hello from Ft. Greene in Brooklyn. Several new eating places have opened since I was here last, and it's so nice to see wine lists that include wines from different places like Greece and Israel. I left Napa about 10 days ago. Stopped over in Sacramento for a few days to take care of some logistics, and had fun celebrating St. Pat's with Irish car bombs (drop a shot of Bailey's/Jamison into Guinness). Drove south to Santa Barbara's north county wine country, just outside of Santa Maria. I made quick visits to Cambria, Rancho Sisquoc and Khoeler wineries. After driving over the Sierra Madres into the central valley, I was on my to Las Vegas. Didn't get much of a chance to hit any of the casinos or restaurants as I was busy getting ready to take off for JFK.

    Mojo been diggin some Old Vine Zinfandels lately. Our Giants are on again...all about the pitching baby. Little nervous about Armando carrying the heavy lifting. We never appreciated how reliable Rob Nenn was. You should try and get to Yankee stadium--truly old school. Dig that right coast.

    Burn it Down Mag--Indian Style.
