Food, travel and a great drink; it’s what we hunger for. It’s the feeling of discovery as we explore wineries and vineyards learning about the wines from a particular region or the science and art of the winemaking process. It’s the feeling of contentment, as we lounge on a warm sandy beach, exotic drink in hand, or the excitement of wandering through the backstreets of Paris, seeking out an offbeat restaurant where you encounter the most memorable meal of your life.
Experiences like these can’t usually be recreated, sometimes you just need the setting. But I do my best to provide information and education about everything related to food, wine, and travel. It’s my pleasure to bring so many of life’s joys together into one forum.
Read stories from the field as I explore wineries and vineyards, chefs and restaurants, and wonderful destinations and share what I discover. I’m WSET2 certified, passionately seeking out in my spare time, contributing to a variety of lifestyle and wine publications, including The Oregonian, Portland Monthly, SIP Northwest, WinePress Northwest, Northwest Travel and Life, Amtrak’s OnTrak, 1859 Magazine, Oregon Wine Press, Roots, Oregon Wine Board, and Palate Press. One of my favorite past times is locating and sharing information about Oregon’s hidden wine gems.
