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.

A calling from God and my liver

Happy New Year and I know it's been too long since my last post. I've dusted myself off and I'm ready to do it again. I mean all of it. Since my last post in April (sheesh), I went down for a dark period and way back up and can say that I've survived a very tough year. Things are looking good.

I wanted to write about how I landed the job of a lifetime... well maybe that's a bit dramatic, but it's a freaking great job with some great people. I was going to tell you about my new bed and how I finally sold my car. I was going to tell you about all the great wine I tasted (DUH THAT'S WHAT THIS BLOG IS ABOUT) and all the celebs with bad hair that I've waited on... I was going to tell you about my niece Racheal having a baby, so my sis Marcella is a GRANDMA. I was going to tell you about the ASA blind tasting class and the Court of Master Sommelier Certification test I took. I got 2 new pins and now know how much more I need to know. I was going to tell you about my dental work and love life, and how I thought I lost my mojo... fear almost ate me alive. I was going to be really funny and sad. I was going to tell you that buying my new bed was a turning point. I was going to tell you how wine is like music is like art is like people, with layers and complexity, flavor and texture. I was going to tell you about the trip I just took to California to sell off the end of that chapter in my life. Oh well, let's see what happens this year.

I've had some bottle age and I know I'll be better in 2008.
