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.

Supersize me

My mother would love it here, you can play keno on French tv, and because of what I said before about the bread plus all the jelly and butter. Friday morning we hung out in Beaune and then had an awesome lunch at Le P'tit Paradis (salad with langustinos, durado on spinach, sauces and dressing were magnificent). Drank 2003 St. Romain white by Joseph Drouhin (it's near Meursault, equal red/white produced there), in warmer years it's similar to Meursault at a better value. After CoCo and I drove to Dijon so she could miss the train back to Paris. She had to wait a half hour for the next one and I drove back south for a nap. Friday night I decided to rest and watch tv, ha ha a travel show on San Fran/Bay Area (mavericks, marin, city lights bookstore and Jack Kerouac's "On the Road" hmmmmm. Trying to decide where I'm heading tomorrow, as it is my last day in Puligny. I'm enjoying my Corton Gran Cru, doing laundry in the sink, trying to learn French real fast-like. Brought along my Jancis Robinson wine course dvd - I'm a dork and very happy.

My double chin is now made entirely of duck and wine.

Saturday, weather is perfect and spent the day at a tasting lunch with Olivier Laflaive.
