Thanks for visiting my web site. Here I post musings on my experiences as a wine professional and my reflections on various aspects of the wine world, and, occasionally, other beverages. Wine permits virtually unlimited occasions for the expression of opinions; I try to consider wine with an open mind and to structure my viewpoints around facts and quality.
