Born and raised in the Washington State wine industry; lived in the likes of Singapore, Seattle, Austin, I've returned to WA wine country. There aren't many wines I dislike and when I think of good wine vs bad wine, I'm looking for flawed wine; the rest is subjective. I'm a cook, a wine educator and consultant, harvest & crush labor, and a history nerd. I also raise sheep (for their milk, that I turn into cheese). Let the jokes commence.
