What are you hoping to get out of this group?

I am hoping to hang out with people who know the difference between sipping and chugging and why that's actually important to real wine lovers!

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

I'm a kinda afficionada. I thank my love of the vine to tasting expeditions in Italy and California’s Napa and Sonoma Valleys, not to mention proselytizing by local wine gurus. I have a well-organized cellar (but I'd like some new tips!). :-D

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

Italian Valpolicella Superiore and many wines from Piedmont, Tuscany and Sienna regions - or small producers that have never sold outside of Italy. :-D California Zins always surprise me and Spanish tempranillo gives me pleasurable shivers. I'll try the under-appreciated Syrah from just about anywhere, but I haven't really found an Australian shiraz I want to drink again ... got one?

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

I need some thoughts on that from others. My best experiences have been word-of-mouth research and buying online!


There's nothing like a nice cup of hot tea followed by wine after a hearty hike off a good trail. I travel a LOT and love to share wine experiences. I love laughing with friends so hard that wine comes out of my nose . . . after I sip slowly.
