then I lived in France for some time, I learned to love wine and chees. (I hated cheese as well.) While I ws there I took a wine tasting class, and a few more here in Vermont.
I learned that the perfect wine can enhance the flavors of food to an extent I never imagined possible. 6 years ago

..is Brown Brothers – Tarrango. As much as I’d prefer to be promoting a wine from New Zealand, this Australian red is absolutely superb!
Recommended to drink chilled, but I’ve been drinking it at room temperature and I think it’s fantastic. I’ve been through three bottles already. (I may have to buy a few boxes of this stuff) 6 years ago

Only a crappy little tasting as part of training, but it was really interesting and fun (although having a cold was rather a hindrance and I had to get inventive when the tutor asked me about the ‘nose’ – I couldn’t smell a thing!). I enjoyed it because although we considered the wines in a commercial context (i.e. how can I make this wine sound appealing), the guy stressed that the best way of selling is by discovering what you like and being able to tell customers about it. I like the times when I don’t totally hate having a job! 7 years ago
when a dear old friend was trying to convince me to move to the Bay Area, he took me up to Napa to visit several wineries. really good ones will take the time to answer all of your questions. 7 years ago
We went to this vineyard while we were in Spain. Well worth doing… The wine, the atmosphere and the history were amazing. 7 years ago
