Wine 101



If you like wine and are curious to learn more, here's a great place to start. I'll begin by introducing concepts like aroma, acidity, and tannins. We'll review some winemaking techniques, and where flavors like butter or vanilla come from. We'll learn how to read a wine label, and what to look for at a wine shop or bar. I'll answer any questions you have along the way, and my goal is for you to be able to more confidently describe what you like (and don't like!) in a wine and help inspire you to keep exploring the wide world of wines.

Every glass of wine tells a story, and I love sharing those stories with others. I'm a finance professional by day, and wine fanatic at night. My wine travels have brought me to Bordeaux, Champagne, Porto, the Douro Valley, Temecula, and Long Island, and I've worked wine events, tastings, and retail. I hold a WSET Level 3 Award in Wines, with specialized knowledge in the wines of France.
