Background:

For three years I had a monthly wine/spirits/food “lifestyle” magazine column where I explored some very fun topics (please see the box to the left for links to selected articles).

Now I’m focusing on this site and working on write-ups for all the wonderful wineries and wine professionals I’ve interacted with over the years.

Why I write:

My academic career (Ph.D. in Neuropharmacology) involved the study of how biochemical cascades within the brain lead to long-lasting neuronal changes, including our memories. Therefore, when my brain tells me that whatever stuff I just jammed in my piehole is delicious, my interest usually relates to the cerebral hows and whys of my responses.

Additionally, I’ve been extremely fortunate to have eaten and drunken my way through 40 countries to-date. My appreciations of the world’s sensual delights are usually driven by my biological and chemical curiosities, noted above.

I taste hundreds of wines each year, and I take detailed notes on almost all of them.  Each and every wine (also beer, spirit, etc.) that I consider worthy of your attention makes it to these pages.

I hope you enjoy my musings.

Hi!

Linda Kissam told us about your blog! I work with Twin Pomegranates Wine and we would love to send you some of our wine for review! We will have our 2 new wines bottled within 2 months, and would love to send you all 3 of our wines then! Just subscribed to your blog as well, looking forward to reading your posts!

Cheers!

I’m working with Robert Mondavi Private Selection on an upcoming toast to celebrate what would be Robert Mondavi’s 100th birthday. Is there an email I can send more information to? We’d love for you to join in the event.

Thanks!
