The joy of doing this is discovering wines you didn’t even know existed. This will continuously be a lifelong journey with no end in sight. And as daunting as that may sound on the surface, that’s exactly how it should be. Unless there is some magical ending, there should never be a final resting place. Well unless … Continue reading Sweet Cat

I’m going to admit a little something here. I made a booboo. I’m not sure if I just spelled the word ‘booboo’ correctly. But I digress.
