Welcome to

Learn a thing. Do the thing. Teach the thing to someone else. 

That’s the old, sage advice on how to achieve proficiency in any subject. 

And that, in part, is why I write about wine. 

Writing for you means thinking for myself: bringing structure, facts and feeling to what I’ve seen and learned on my travels through the world of wine.  

And what a world! It offers joy and adventure, sensory delights and endless encounters with people of character, courage and skill.  

It’s been a privilege and a pleasure to share with you a drink in thought in 2017. 

Season’s Greetings! And see you again in the brand new, bright new year.
