I've met so many great folks in the industry mostly online, but also in person via events that I have attended. My greatest accomplishment was becoming certified as an Italian Wine Specialist with the North American Sommelier Association. I've made blogger friends all around the world having the ability to be able to meet some of them in person. I've been fortunate to have visited Italy by invitation on a couple of occasions to dig into the wine regions, meet winemakers and tour the facilities with more offerings recently, but unfortunately my 2 little bundles of joy that I've had over the past couple years have kept me from doing so. It's only a moment in time and I know I'll be able to get back over there soon and be able to share some of those personal explorations with you soon enough.
|My reasons for the recent slow down on blog, but all worth it, dont you think?!|
Here's to tasting many more great Italian wines, sharing more stores and another great 5+ years. Cin cin!
