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.

celebration ale

I'm enjoying a celebration ale from Sierra Nevada late night as I'm catching up on the news (online) that the Dems got control back in Washington today. Rainy today here and looking forward to a visit this weekend from Krazy Mary of Sacramento. Next week the girls and I will head to the Spotted Pig for a peek into the popular gastropub. What does gastropub mean? I will report back. Finally getting my weekly TONY in the mail along with a ConEd bill in my name, and at a real address. Everything is good right now, except I keep having the feeling that I'm forgetting something and I cannot fully relax (well just about at 97%). But something is bothering me and I think it might be that I'm drinking too much coffee. I broke out with my famous "I know how to say bra in German" jokes at work. I'm assisting with some sake descriptions on a revised sake list to be printed in the next few days. Here's what I came up with on one of our new selections: With a slight sweetness, the round texture of this sake strikes a balance with the acidity in the finish. Fuhren is versatile as it will pair easily with with a wide range of dishes. It has a clean nose with floral and green notes.
