About Life with Wine
Life with Wine is about taking all the tastings notes, winemaker interviews, seminars, recommendations, photography, travels and recipes and putting them in the service of storytelling. It is about the way wine connects us to our senses and to the rhythms of the natural world, marks time and goads us to know other cultures. Most of all it is about wine as a pathway to a notion of good living informed by balance, presence and sharing.
