I am not your Somm. But I might be, one day . . .
My Wine Bio :: Paso Robles, California, wine country 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 I have yet to lean in and give life to my creative. As carefully documented herein from post one: “Go Broke. For Wine.,” The Client Bar vulnerably begins with a full expression of the same elements of suspension, love and loss you might find in a cinematic blockbuster. But it was ME, unwillingly cast in the leading role of this story of transformation, on Christmas Day – alone.
The Client Bar will express in image, poetry and prose . . . the likes, loves, sights, sufferings, and inspirations that rule my thought patterns, cause me to question, and drive exploration into the world of wine from a self-taught, novice chair. One day this emboldened passion will turn into a legitimate wine certification. I love to learn, I love to share; however until formal certification is earned, I’m the simple equivalent of a somm-groupie, 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.
