A few months ago, I had the opportunity to submit an online article for Porthole Cruise magazine. They were looking for individuals willing to share a story about their love of wine. As another Father’s Day approaching without my Dad, I couldn’t imagine a better way to honor his memory than to tell the story of how he taught me to learn and love wine. Luckily, they liked it enough to publish it!
Some of my wine knowledge I had to discover on my own, but the roots were planted early in my lifetime by my father. What I now know is because of the precious time my dad took to teach me about something he absolutely loved. Now that he is gone, I get to pass on this legacy with the wine he willed to me after his death. I have the incredible privilege of sharing fabulous wine with friends and family I love. I get to take my dad’s “wine hat” and teach others what my he taught me over the years.
Wine is not just about finding the perfect bottle or knowing if you have opened something “worthy” to drink. It’s about creating memories and moments with people you love and enjoy being around.
I hope you enjoy this insight into how and why I fell in love with the world of wine.
Until next time,
