I always enjoyed wine. My grandparents lived in the countryside where they had been making wine for over 30 years. At first I didn’t even know there were different grape varieties. For me, the differentiation in color was the only one. One thing was for certain: I preferred sweet red wine. I loved it when they served freshly baked home made bread with sweetened red wine. Somehow, somewhere in the back of my head I knew that wine was made to be paired with food.
Over the years I enjoyed drinking Pinot Noir, Merlot, Feteascã Neagrã and the occasional Chardonnay. In essence I prefer sweeter wines, but when it comes to the bouquet nothing beats an oak aged dry Cabernet Sauvignon. My wine passion began escalating after college. I started participating at wine events such as the Wipfelder Wine Fest in 2001, the Austrian Wine Festival in 2003, France’s Fete de la Vigne et du Vin in 2005, the 2008 Estival du Vin and many others.
Recently I updated the blog LetsTalkWine.com because I wish to share my knowledge about wine and winemaking. Throughout the years I have gathered lots of experience in wine tasting but more important I have learned from the experiences of the people I have met. From simple country winemakers to awarded critics, we are all here to enhance our lives, to comunicate and connect on different levels.
