About Me

I’ve appreciated wines for years since my grandfather loved Bordeaux and Ribera del Duero, but never before lived in a location that allowed for starting a collection (both temps and pricing were concerns). Now in DC, I’ve started a modest one with an eye for QPR and wines off the beaten path.

I’m generally in awe of the wines from Mosel and Barolo, and even cheaper Piedmont reds.

After years of dismissing Zinfandel, I’ve grown to love the preservation efforts and the amazing quality of producers like Carlisle. I think, with Climate Change, that’s the future of California wine, especially in the Russian River Valley and Mendocino.

Rías Baixas gets too little love in my opinion and I support the winemakers striving to bring it to the top of the quality map, where it should be.

I need to explore more from Santorini, Sicily, Jura and the Loire valley, since I’ve mostly really enjoyed what I’ve had so far. Txakoli and grower Champagne interest me too.

Interested in learning more about both Burgundy and Oregon Pinots.

If you’re in the DC/DMV area and want to talk or taste some wines together, please reach out. Do not hesitate.
