Welcome.

I am not your Somm.  But I might be, one day . . .

My Wine Bio :: Paso Robles grown.  Novice to grid tasting.  Expert at drinking.  Happy when hosting.  Happier when sharing.

And so . . . welcome to my passion project! I created The Client Bar as a love letter to myself, during a season of realization that life in my 40’s has begun and looks abso-freaking-loutley nothing like the way I planned it to be. As carefully documented in post one: “Go Broke. For Wine.”, The Client Bar begins with a full expression of the same elements you might find in a cinematic blockbuster.  But it was ME, unwillingly cast in the leading role on Christmas Day – alone.

The Client Bar will express in image, poetry and prose . . . the likes, loves, sufferings, and inspirations that rule my thought patterns, cause me to question, and drive me to explore of the world of wine from a self-taught, novice chair.  I’m the equivalent of a Somm Groupie, literally a Winemaker fan-girl, a wannabe wine write who lives amongst the hills and vines in her wildest dreams.  Do you want to be a wine savage?  Have a seat at the bar and write the story with me.
