As you all know I like wine, no, let me restate that, I LOVE WINE . . . I do.  I see it as one of the many pleasures in life.  With this in mind, I thought why not write a little about what I am drinking and share on my Blog.  Click below to see all of my wine reviews in one place . . . no big words, no pretentiousness, short and sweet, just me and my wine.
