I started this blog about 7 years ago to help me navigate through this tricky world of wine. I was a wine novice and wanted other novices to understand wine, on their own unique levels. I didn’t want this to be another stuffy blog talking in language no one else understands. I simply wanted everyone to take a journey with me.
And this journey has lead me to expand my knowledge beyond expectations..
I am not a writer by any stretch of the imagination. However I am a wife, mom, Washington State University alum , school counselor and now a wine business owner, who has grown a passion for these divine grapes. I love wine and everything about it – not just drinking it, but exploring its historical past. Within the last few years, I have had the luxury of taking classes at the Northwest Wine Academy on food/wine pairings, growers champagne, wine sensory,comparing wines from different regions and wine history /appreciation. I also have been able to meet with local wine makers and people within the wine business; as well as gaining hands of experience by working at The Grape Choice in Kirkland, WA (a small local wine shop/bar) , EFESTE Winery and currently Avennia in Woodinville, WA.
Being able to become more hands on is something I want to explore on this journey. Which is how I developed Vin Wine and Events, an in-home wine tasting experience (http://vinwineseattle.com). I hope within the next few years to expand my knowledge and business even more, so I can share it with you. This blog is a continued journey and hope you enjoy this wine ride as much as I do! Please leave me any comments or suggestions!
