The Drinkers

“You can enjoy wine without being a snob!”

Jeff Eckles

I enjoyed drinking wine for years, I had my favorites and stuck to them for the most part.  I didn’t really pay attention to what I was drinking other than to recognize if I liked it or not.  I could count on one hand the grape varieties that I would pick from a wine list, you could probably guess them in one try.  At some point though, I decided I wanted to experience more.  I started attending local tastings, reading wine blogs, became a wine library tv lurker, and took some wine tasting classes.  Eventually I decided it was time to get serious about my wine education.  Since that point I have become a Certified Specialist of Wine through the Society of Wine Educators, and am now working to become a Certified Wine Educator. I have been blogging about wine since 2010, have sold wine in a retail environment, and continue to host wine education tastings whenever I can.
