I'm a graduate student in archaeology. I love traveling, cooking and baking, wine, beer, camping, hiking, reading, and having a good time with laid-back people.
I prefer dry wines, generally red, although a dry white with subtle mineral tones can be amazing. My favorite region is Cotes du Rhone.
I like smallish gatherings in people's homes. Potlucks are nice, parties with wine and cheese pairings are also good.
I joined this group because it welcomed people who were just curious, moderately knowledgeable, and connoisseurs. I'm only a novice, and I'd like to talk to some people who really know their stuff.
In Washington, I used to have friends over for wine and cheese parties where people all brought different wines, cheeses, chocolates, etc. They were always a great time, and I got to try wines I might not have otherwise picked up at the store.
I have lived in Dallas since January, and the first time I've ever been to Texas was when I moved here. I'm originally from Florida and I've lived in New York City and Pullman, Washington.
