Hometown: Framingham, Massachusetts
April 15, 2012
I have toured through Argentina (Mendoza), Chile (near Santiago), Sonoma, Napa and the Loire Valley. As a place to visit, above all is the Loire Valley and the castles there, where we did a self-designed weeklong bike tour. As the place where my favorite wine comes from, that would have to be Mendoza and the Burgundy region.
Red is my ultimate preference, though there are times for white and rose...
One of my first wine experiences was wandering through the hills of South Santa Clara County (CA) near San Jose. We called a small winery owner and asked about a tour, but instead they invited us to have lunch with the family on the property.
