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.

last hours before Europe

So just a few hours before I take off for Paris. I'm in the cafe across the street from my cousin's place using the wi-fi while i got a load working at the laundromat. Beautiful day today here in New York, and last night was incredible. Met up with Giamma for an Italian wine tasting at Gradisca, the place he just started to work at. Lots of people speaking Italian and giving me a quick lesson for my upcoming visit. Next, we visited Cru to taste some nice wine in the front room including Pigato from Italy. I was told the perfect pairing for it is pesto linguine becuase they both come from Liguria. After we went to the opening party for Plus Ultra art gallery that recently moved to Chelsea from Williamsburg, I had some great food at The Red Cat. Two words, yum and fun... except for the buzz-kill matre'd lady at Red Cat.

I land in Paris on April Fool's day tomorrow. I'm going to take the subway to JFK. Trying to avoid having a nice cup of coffee. Wow, this all feels so cool.
