Together, we have learned about wine literally from the ground up having helped with the harvest, crush, punch-downs, and bottling. We continue to educate and bring interesting and informative articles to our readers.
We are proud to state that we are not CRITICS but prefer to talk about the “overall” experience and have been called Food and Wine “advocates” by many in the industry. We have forged many personal and professional relationships from Vineyard owners to renowned Chefs and Sommeliers. We believe “Wine is a Lifestyle” that brings people together, creating cherished memories for a lifetime.
