Moved to Europe to work for 5 years and that's where I discovered my love of wines. We had a "wine expert" in our company who'd lived in Europe and his wife was French. He encouraged me just to "taste a lot of wines" and "find out what you like". That's what I did as I traveled in France and Italy in particular and those are the wines I came to love. The regions are also fascinating. Tuscany is the most scenic and alluring; Burgundy much more "understated" than one would imagine given it makes some of the world's most expensive white and red wines. And Bordeaux is very "rich with grandeur" with quite palatial chateaux. I'd like to go back and this time make appts. to visit some of famous/top wineries.
I just love wine and am interested in having my own winery one day. We'll see.
I'm American but a lover of European wines mostly. Adore Burgundies: smooth but rich reds and bold, buttery/oaky whites. Keep looking for cheaper everyday options. But nothing has beaten a White Mersault for example. learning more about American wines
