Every time we meet is an opportunity to know more of you and what you like. I'm available for local wine tastings, trying new blends, or enjoying a glass for lunch.
Favorites for a budding wino: Creamy French whites from colder regions and Italian fruity, bubbly whites and roses from the sunshine, a lighter medium bodied, sensual Tempranillo for later.
Frequent Requests by clients: medium-bodied reds for appetizers or lunch - North Western California to Washington state, heavier, full-bodied reds for dinner
*Take me with you for a 100 USD Reduction off the total amount of meetings lasting at least a few hours.
Next in line: As many Bordeaux one can handle, Gewurztraminer and Chenin Blanc copycats.
I'm exploring the world with my taste buds ;)
So far, Southern Italian dishes are what I like the most. I've had plenty of Southern U.S. country comfort foods and bites at English pubs - put those aside for Afghan or Turkish cuisine.
