We’re just a couple of people hooked on wine!
Although we both enjoyed wine during our younger years, we really became ‘official’ winelovers when we were living in No. California. With the famous “California Wine Country” just a couple of hours away, we made many, many wine-tasting trips.
Not only did we taste scores of different wines (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Petite Sirah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Johannisberg Riesling, Zinfandel, Fume Blanc, Viognier . . . the list goes on and on), we also gained a ton of information about wine.
We were privileged to attend several new release and barrel tastings, as well as winery events that demonstrated the intriguing combinations of wine and food. We also took part in blind tastings (the bottle is covered), vertical tastings (comparing vintages), and comparative tastings (comparing wineries or varietals).
During our outings, we visited large, well-known wineries, such as Beringer, Mondavi, Kendall-Jackson, Wente, as well as tiny, family-run wineries that we often stumbled upon by accident. Some of the wines we tasted were excellent, some of them were so-so, and some of them made our toes curl!
We met and talked with winery owners and winemakers, as well as dozens of wine lovers that we met along the way.
In other words, we became very well-acquainted with wine. We share some of what we learned on this website.
In 2004, we decided to move to So. Oregon and have since become acquainted with the many wines from this area. Lucky for us, there are several wineries located within a few miles of us that each produce award-winning wines.
If you have any questions about wine (or our website), please feel free to contact us. If we don’t have the answer, we’ll do our best to find it!
Female winelovers will appreciate the following:
A woman was sipping on a glass of wine while sitting on the patio with her husband.
She says, “I love you so much. I don’t know how I could ever live without you.”
Her husband asks, “Is that you or the wine talking?”
She replies, “It’s me … talking to the wine.”
