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 didn't get arrested but my car did. My car got towed, and it was an adventure to find it and pay to set it free.

Over the weekend I took a drive to the new Fairway grocery store in Red Hook. Very nice big store and Red Hood is a really cute hood, no subway there though . As we were leaving the store I noticed a great view of the Statue of Liberty.

As I went looking for propane and the tow yard, I saw areas where Tony Soprano would dump bodies. I know you are probably saying he's in Jersey, but I'm guessing it looks the same.

IL Mimo, a rose of nebbiolo, was the wine I had at Gramercy. I made a mistake in my earlier post. I had the Spanish rose at Bar Jamon (very cute bar, but tini tiny).

I worked some "try out" shifts over the weekend, and I got a job.
