Wine: The Beginning of An Incredible Love Story.
The beginning of my interest and love for wine manifested 18 years ago while building a home for a doctor. While building his home I found it very intriguing how he cared more about his wine cellar than he did any other room in the house. This was the beginning of my interviews with many wine enthusiasts. My very first question to this doctor was: Why is this cellar so important? With no hesitation, he answered: "Money". He bought and traded himself a collection that was worth over $250,000. He told me he loves wine but buying and trading was his real love. Shortly after I met the owners of a cabinet shop who also owned two restaurants at the time. I will always remember this husband and wife couple for their love of the wine itself. They took pride in researching the history of each bottle they ever opened so that they would not only taste the grape but the land, the people and the air it took to make it. Irregardless of the reason for your love of wine, I started this blog to share, encourage and educate wine lovers of all kinds.
Don't be fooled:
Many people are fooled in believing the more expensive the wine the better the taste. Not true!! Wine prices is a lot like the stock market in the sense that there is a lot of undiscovered wines out there. Wine that are hidden gems waiting for people to catch on. Many things can determine the price of wine but taste is not always the case. I have tasted all kinds of wines from the different vineyards through out the years. You can buy wines under $15.00 and as low as $5.00 from most vineyards. Below I have chosen some good vineyards that I like for there affordable wine selections. I think you will be shocked to see these wines at your favorite restaurant marked up considerably. So please don't fall under the assumption that cost makes for a better wine.
