Wine and I used to be acquaintances. Now I have a full-on crush.

I love wineries–I secretly dream of having an “I Love Lucy” moment one day and stomping on grapes with my BFF Ethel–and I’m partial to sauntering down store aisles hunting for new finds. I adore uncorking a bottle. Even my toleration for twist-tops has transformed into respect as I’ve experienced their convenience firsthand (think camping trips, outdoor concerts, picnicking, the benefits abound). I swoon at the glug-glug of the first pour. I think clinking glasses should be the new handshake.

This blog is about showing you how I’ve transitioned from wine novice to oenophile (sort of).

I promise my posts will be enlightening and sans-snoot. Enjoy!
