What are you hoping to get out of this group?

A chance to meet fellow wine lovers, partake in some good/interesting conversation, and maybe develop some friendships with people that share a common interest....and of course, to sip on some good vino!

As far as wine knowledge, do you consider yourself a newbie, a casual drinker, an afficionado, expert or something else?

I'd probably throw myself into the casual drinker to afficionado category. I don't think I'll ever be an expert - if I was, it seems like some of the fun in discovering new wines might be lost!

Do you have a favorite wine, varietal, region, etc?

Lots of favs, and they tend to change with the Vintage and the Season. I tend to favor complex, spicy reds, with a medium tannic finish (Cabs, Petite Syrahs). I also love a good Carmenere, but they've been spotty since '05 -'07.

What's your favorite wine shop around town? Why?

Kidd Wine n Spirits, cause I like ole Kevin.


Well hello fellow wine lovers! I grew up in Cary (Raleigh), NC and moved to NashVegas about 6 years ago and love it! I'm a former Environmental Engineer/Consultant and now do Business Development for a Green Construction Company throughout TN/KY.
