I am the author of two previous harvest blogs:
“Season of Growth” is meant to be a pictorial microblog – short in duration.
I like to run. Running Fitch Mountain in Healdsburg helps inspire my creative side and keeps me sane (and allows me to eat scones almost daily).
I am certified by the Court of Master Sommeliers and The Society of Wine Educators.
I encourage you to join GuildSomm if you want to get serious about studying wine. It’s a great place to learn and a good place to network if you are in the hospitality or wine trade.
The title “Season of Growth” also refers to my own education. As my previous blogs document, I have worked at two wineries. Leaving Texas, part of my dream was to immerse myself in the California food and wine culture.
As part of this ongoing endeavor, I will work the 2011 harvest in the Russian River Valley.
The title picture was taken at the end of my 2010 internship. I rode a bike to my favorite spot on Oakville Crossroad on November 21, 2010…a good place to start looking towards
