Hometown: Dayton, OH

A week in Napa in 1998. Turns out that was the most expensive trip I've ever taken, since I spend so much money today because of it.
I have done blind tastings (and even hosted quite a few).
Of course. I have hosted events where we taste the same bottle with and without an aerator, focus on a grape or a country or region, try wines from lesser-known places (Rhode Island and the Republic of Georgia), and paired with food (chocolates, meats, cheeses).
A wine enthusiast but far from an expert. I know what I like and what I don't, though I have been surprised a time or ten.
