Reflections on A Year in Champagne

Champagne was once elusive to me. I had tasted sparkling wines à la méthode traditionelle, but never had tasted Champagne until a few years ago. My first Champagne was a half-bottle of Veuve Clicquot Brut NV Yellow Label in October of 2012. I had…

Facing your own mortality

I’ve only had two experiences in my life where I felt I could have died. The first was in the fall of 1990. I had taken an extra job working at a restaurant to supplement my teaching income that summer, but decided to keep working there nights and…

#ZinExp: Your ticket to Zintastic Zinfandel!

Last year I was supposed to attend Zinfandel Advocates & Producers’ (ZAP) Zinfandel Experience, but I was in a middle of a big, cross-country move and settling into a new life and career. In fact, on January 11, 2015, I celebrate my one-way trip to Napa,…
