A globe trotter and oenophile, my interest in world affairs extends to wines and other drinks that pair well with food. I prefer dry, medium- to full-bodied reds, especially Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Côtes du Rhône, certain Bordeaux reds, Mendoza malbecs, and Oregon pinot noir. As for sparkling and white wines, I also enjoy prosecco, ice wine, and Vouvray. I love humor like I like my wine, dark and dry! Other interests: hiking, running, traveling, crossword puzzles, history, anything by Jasper Fforde, and "Pearls Before Swine" by Stephan Pastis.
Easy to drink, wine is the ultimate pairing with most dishes. The extreme variety of wine provides one a limitless world to explore, both in flavor and geography. There's a bottle for every occasion!
