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.

women in wine

Here is a link to a new wine radio show my friend Erin is doing from Brooklyn:

I get the question/comment so many times at work (I work on the floor at Le Bernardin in New York as a sommelier) that people rarely see women as sommeliers. I guess there is a concentration of women working in the field here in NYC, and maybe larger markets like LA, because I know and see many of them. Where are you and do you see many women in wine? One of Erin's programs is an interview with Amy Aiken who is a wine maker in Napa.

Here is another link from Erin and her recent wine trip to Germany:

By the way, I made contact with Women for WineSense while I lived in Napa, and never got a call back. What do they do and what are they all about.
