A Glimpse Of New Zealand
I wish I could say there was more than just this moment in time. There are so many places in this world to experience, but there are few that motivate me to sell every material thing I own and begin again in. This is something that can’t be explained: especially in this space I acknowledge…
Influencer Status – Reviewing Ravines Wine Cellars
Want to learn more about wine from the Finger Lakes in NY, and Ravines Wine Cellars? The POD and I taste three wines, and want to tell you all about it….
Creating A New Narrative With Catena Zapata White Stones Chardonnay – Which Personal And/Or Wine Story Do YOU Choose?
YOU paint your own picture – in and out of your wine choices. How does that picture shift into a new journey? Let’s discuss who we are NOW, and how we navigate a few pricy wines.
Catena Alta Chardonnay Fantasmas
Last night, yet again, I couldn’t sleep. This isn’t a Covid thing, this is a Susan thing. I don’t have a problem falling asleep; on the contrary. Once the day is over, once I can sit on a couch with a Nexflix agenda – I’m out. I start to stir at 3 or 4 AM.…

Divide and Conquer – Judging Truvee Chardonnay
Have you ever felt the pull of another soul? Two sisters, that do not know about each other, both fall into the wine business on two different continents, and upon their father’s death… They connect.

All About the French – Part 1
Let’s get something out of the way – wine is about what YOU like. It is what warms your cheeks, makes you sexy, tells you stories, creates the mystery. I WILL NEVER TELL YOU WHAT TO DO OR DRINK; in wine or in life. Unless, of course, you want me to… But yeah, the French got…
