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.

Getting close to harvest time

Veraison - I heard from a friend in Napa that the grapes are turning color and getting sweet. Shouldn't be too long now before they are ready to pick.

Bad pairing - I think it's hard to make a bad combination when there is good food and wine involved. But on my Lambrusco kick, I tried it with some scallops and the pair was terrible. Now if I could just remember how the scallops were prepared... That showed me, I think.

Boy asking if he could help - I was unloading groceries and a young man asked if he could help me. That was nice.

Rating on the barrel samples - I heard from another friend in Cal that the 2005 reserve Cab I helped make (still in barrel) has received a mid-90 point prelim rating from Wine Spectator!

The keylime pie was even better this weekend.

    Read through your blogs. Hate to admit it but first time for me reading a blog. Fantastic job on both the blog and landing a to-die-for job. A regular NY girl.
