To kick off Wine Wednesdays I would like to share my history with wine. At the ripe age of 21, I fancied visiting wineries here in the Central Virginia area. If you don’t already know, there are many. You can hardly leave one before stumbling upon another. The rich Virginia soil and the humid climate makes for growing some of the best grapes in the world. (Virginia Wine Lovers Magazine’s words not mine alone.) Unfortunately I am not forever 21 but I hope I am something like wine and get better with age. Over these last few years I have tasted wine at 30 plus wineries in Virginia, North Carolina, and Michigan. Wine festivals are my ideal kind, where I can explore familiar favorites along with new varietals. While in Serbia this fall I attended the Grozdjebal 2013 (Grape Festival) and had the opportunity to try many wines from native Serbia, Croatia and Germany. That being said, I’d like to think I’m on my way to becoming a wine connoisseur. If you have a passion for wine keep visiting on Wednesdays for a wine tasting review. And who knows maybe there is a book about wine in the future?
