APRIL NEWS: MONTCO'S BEST 2017
I've won an award from "Montco Happenings Magazine," listed as THE, "Famous Montco-er 2017!" While I'm not too sure about my celeb status, I am super-excited to be recognized and am flattered for all of the love. Check out the results here:
Thanks so much for all of your support, everyone!
FEATURE ARTICLE IN SPOONFUL MAGAZINE SPRING 2017
The latest quarterly publication of Spoonful Magazine's Spring Edition, "Air," is out in stores now and I'm proud to be featured in a full six-page spread! The article is all about my journey in wine, and also has a three-course wine pairing meal complete with recipes (prepared by yours truly). Spoonful is available nationwide in Barnes and Noble bookstores and in Whole Foods Markets.
RING IN 2017 WITH WINE WEEKENDS AT THE IRIS B&B!
The year starts out with a rush of activity! Come join us in Waynesboro, Virginia for THREE separate Wine Weekends (101, 201, and NEW 301) at the Iris. Each package includes 5 separate wine events, led by yours truly! We'll taste local wine, cheese and chocolates, learn how to savor with an in-depth tasting class, and finish the weekend with a three-course pairing meal. The new 301 weekend will go even deeper with a tour to a local winery with a Vertical tasting, plus a six-course tasting menu.
I'll be working with the Spring Mill Cafe in Conshohocken, PA as a Private Sommelier, handling some of their events and future beverage needs. I'm proud to work with this wonderful restaurant and have been a patron for years.
I now have the added benefit of direct access to a wonderful selection of wines from local distributor Deschere's Select Wine and Spirits. In the coming weeks I'll be doing a series of tasting review videos for Tom's portfolio. More here...
MUSIC, WINE & RADIO: TALKING IN TEMECULA!
I had the unique privilege to be featured live on LA Talk Radio last week, on the Chords and Vines Radio show with host Kat Ellis. We listened to some of my recordings from the band days, and then winemaker Jim Hart of Hart Winery paired the songs up with some of his wines. A great concept and we had a lot of fun!

THE GRAPE COLLECTIVE
I'm happy to announce that my videos will now be featured as part of the GRAPE COLLECTIVE, an online publication that helps the wine-curious amateur learn more about wine and spirits sans-pretension: Much like Wine Living itself. It's a great partnering and we have future plans to provide them with exclusive video content that is not available anywhere else. Stay tuned!
