“Full time wine drinker as well as writer: I host wine events when I’m not writing, I do videos when I’m not hosting, and I drink wine throughout it all.  Work doesn’t feel like work when you love what you do.  I spend my time talking about wine to the people who make it or to the people who drink it, and I only recommend the things that I love.  Drink well, time is short.”
