Hometown: Knob Noster

Hi, I am Audrey.
My faves are from the Friuli region in northern Italy -- red: Refosco, white: Tocai (now called Friulano after a bitter EU dispute). However, I really have an appreciation for most types of wine. I like to enjoy a quality dry Rose/Rosato on a hot afternoon, I like Prosecco or Cava, I enjoy a nice Pinot Noir, and have a preference for oaky Chardonnays, but have had some nice unoaked as well. I tend to lean towards crisp, citrusy whites and complex reds with hints of currant, cherries, and/or chocolate. I'm still learning what I like, and refining my tastes.
I would enjoy getting to know some of the Texas wines...and I enjoy a diverse tasting that helps me discern specific attributes.
When I was stationed in Italy, my friends and I went to a winery where the owners were so welcoming, they invited us into their home and provided meats, cheeses, breads...it was awesome. The camaraderie and fellowship was amazing.
After serving in the military, I attended graduate school and eventually landed in Dallas working in the financial services industry.
