As I delve deeper and deeper into the wine world, past sales and into the hands-on aspects, I am beginning to see all of the intricacies and subtleties that encapsulate this vast industry. As a young traveler with a relatively small budget and modest palate, I feel that too often wine is skewed as something for the higher-ups of society. It was never meant to be that way. As a matter of fact, wine-making has very humble and agrarian beginnings. Through my travels and writing about their results with an emphasis on the wines I encounter, where they are produced, and the people who make it all possible, I wish to share my first hand experiences and learning in the hope that somehow I might make wine more accessible to the common man; the basic premise behind wine consumption, in my mind is, if you enjoy it, then drink it. It does not matter if the bottle costs $5 or $50. If you can relate what you're tasting to something vivid in your collective memory, that's the golden ticket. Be with me on the journey...
