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.

I love Rosé

Hello from Las Vegas where it is hot hot hot. I don't understand how I was born and raised here in this heat? I've spent the last few days getting acclimated and will now venture out to take in the wine scene. Before I left New York though, I met up with some wine classmates for a rosé tasting. Brian has started his own distribution company, Barterhouse, and introduced me to 2004 Jules Rosé. A blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah from Provence, it's on sale at Crush wine store in midtown (I worked there for a bit last year). Good value and perfect drinking for hot weather. Barterhouse rules!

    HAve you been to Oregon's Wilammette Valley?

    We have countless wineries out here. I am going to one on memorial day.
