I love wine. I really love learning about it! Wine really encapsulates that dichotomy of infinite diversity and ultimate “sameness” in the world. I have been working in the retail liquor sector since 2006, and am truly passionate about introducing others to wines created by equally passionate individuals. I have started this blog as a study tool as I advance through the Court of Master Sommeliers. Rather than pound flashcards and memorizing minutia of meaningless stats, I would like to educate and serve, as well as engage other wine enthusiasts. I passed the Certified Exam in 2009, and hope to continue through both the Advanced and Master levels in the years to come!
