Hello and welcome to my little corner of the world. Thanks for stopping by.
So…about this About Me page. I am a rather anonymous individual and am not seeking fame or fortune from this. I have no credentials or letters after my name. I have taken no courses to improve my ability to taste wines. I do not have anything against that form of wine expertise and may go deeper and more official in the craft in the future; I’m just not there at this point. Most of my wine experience has been from Wikipedia, reading articles and blogs like I hope this one will be, and drinking wines I do and don’t like.
Most of the time the wine to be tasted will be bought at a local grocery store because there was a rebate available. It will be paired with either a cheeseburger, pasta with Prego or another sauce, or a Tombstone pizza. Occasionally I will be more exotic with my selections, but I feel a typical meal is not a rare gewürztraminer paired with a pear-glazed spiced duck curry. There is nothing wrong with this, it just isn’t the life I live.
Believe me, I already know there are plenty of wine blogs attempting to ‘de-mystify’ wines for the ‘regular’person. I suppose I will do this from time to time, but my main objective here is simply to record the wines I drink and share my thoughts.
So find a comfortable chair, pour a glass, and I hope you enjoy my journey into wine as you take yours.
