About Me

Born and raised a San Diego Native. Married to a great women, very lucky! The wine "bug" bit a few years after my first trip to Napa and my interest has grown ferociously ever since. Out of my passion for great wine,food pairing and travel I've kept a journal of my adventures and this passion has spilled over into a blog about wine. It is from a layman's prospective. I don't like to pull punches and I will call a spade a spade, but @ the same time I really try to be fair and objective. That's why when I taste a great wine in my humble opinion, I say so! When it does not live up to its reputation or price I will also point that out! I love to talk about my favorite wineries, the new friends I make and the great wines I have run into. Currently I am looking to make a career change into the wine industry. If someone know of a position, please let me know. Thanks ever so much.
