I was first truly introduced to wine about 2 and 1/2 years ago by my sister when she took my parents and I wine tasting in the Santa Ynez Valley.
On that trip, I couldn’t stand ANY of the wines we tried!!!! AT ALL!!! But, I talked myself into buying two bottles of Firestone Riseling and forced myself to drink them with dinner over the next week or two.
Well, I don’t know what was wrong with me back then, but now I LOVE LOVE LOVE wine. (I’m actually taking two classes on wines at SBCC right now! I thought I was signing up for lecture classes, but blow my mind, included in the class fees is TASTING at EVERY class meeting!!!) So, I’m taking one class which is the “Wine Intro” class, and the other is a class devoted to French wines. Too fun!
So, in attempting to expand my horizons on the topic, I ventured out onto the web for more info, and I came up with the most awesome wine video blog ever! Gary Vaynerchuk posts his reviews of wines DAILY (what an inspiration to me to blog more often!!!) (warning, if you’re like me, you’ll spend hours and hours working at your desktop while watching these videos on your laptop!)
