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.

Release the hounds

The job hunt is on. I have an audition shift tonight at a steakhouse in tribeca after another interview with a Tom Colicchio place. My concern about the steakhouse is that their wine selection is limited to domestic picks, but we will see. Could be alright because the GM seems cool. Big interview on Tuesday, and big means that it's at a place I would die to work at. Awesome selection on wines and very popular. The weather is warm but nice, which is good for running around in interview clothes. I brought a bottle of 2003 Cab from Groth in Napa with me, and it's my pick to drink while you are looking for a job in New York. You might be thinking it should be something lighter, but it's a mellow valley floor cabernet that can stand up to the stress of selling yourself, and I need the comfort of the velvety texture to keep my confidence up.
