I've been a wine lover for decades and a wine retailer in the U.S.for 14 years. I also write about wine and the wine industry in a blog called thewinecellarsclub.com. Aussie Shiraz and Cab are among my favorite wines in the world and I've reviewed many on my website. My husband's favorite white in the world in NZ Sauv Blanc, so together we've got your corner of the world covered.
More About Me
Besides wine and food, I love golfing, hiking, traveling, and spending time with husband (when he's not flying an airplane) and my grown kids (when they show up at my door looking for food and wine).
As a wine retailer, it really bugs me when customers say things like, "I don't like Australian wine." Oh really? You've tried them all? And you hate them all?
I've also heard, "I don't drink Merlot," spoken by idiots who think all Merlot is sub-standard wine. Oh really? Ever heard of Chateau Petrus??
Close-mindedness: that's what bugs me.
I love big, bold, in-your-face reds. I've enjoyed (and reviewed) George Shinas' Guilty and Verdict, and other Aussie Shiraz and Cabs. The New World Spanish reds, such as Clio, Finca Sandoval and Fuego also grab me. Big California Cabs and blends also light me up.
