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.

employees only

Check out my new friend The dust is finally settling here for me in Brooklyn. I went to the wine store (Astor wine shop in Manhattan) to buy some of the wine I made in Napa and it hurt to pay full price, plus I got a weird look from the cashier when I told him I made it...

I've been working at a great Italian place and learning so much about Italian wines. I'm "auditioning" for a sommelier position tomorrow night at a new fancy place in midtown. Wish me luck. I have been asked over and over if I'm an actress, and I think that's b/c I'm working as a server at a restaurant.

Great bar (but don't go) Employees Only. "Are those some large ice cubes you have or are you just happy to see me?" Man I had the best cocktail there last night... it starts with egg whites and ends with a float of gamay.

I checked out the new place Japoinais. Value menu prices and nice sake list.

Working on an idea for a travel show. Here are my goals: spanish/italian, biz plan and script.
