Denied the Cheese
When you won't share, you get the Stink Eye.
Ready To Harvest
If memory serves, these are Cabernet Sauvignon grapes ready to harvest- plump, sweet and ready to be wine!
Tenuta Regaleali Lamuri
Sicilian showstopper- lean & acid driven with great red fruits- such an amazing wine pulled from the volcanic soils (on the side of an active volcano!)
Is it wrong that my office is a Happy Place for me? Bring on the Wine!
Kevin, and Ball
Kevin is a punk, and won't get his own toys- but he will always, always, always steal them from his sister dog, the long suffering Pepper.
White Wine Graphic
I wish I knew who I stole these from - cause they are great, and they deserve credit!
This Carmenere is holding beautifully - it was opened when it was 10 years old & it's color is just as dark as when it went into the bottle!
Macallan in the Morning!
I was fortunate to win a trip to Scotland in 2018 & my Macallan mug makes me happy to remember!
Why should wine education be boring? It's the land that defines the grape, so better know your maps!
Beggers Gonna Beg
Just checking to see if you wanted all of that food?
Feet Up & Reflecting Time
My father had a great phrase for when he needed to think instead of act- it was his "F.U.R.T" time. Nothing pleased a small child more than catching him "FURT-ing"!
Red Wine Graphic
I STILL wish I knew who I stole these from - cause they are great, and they deserve credit!
Jordan Winery, Sonoma, CA
Amazingly beautiful winery- this is their fermentation room and ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!
Antinori @ Col Solare
I was fortunate to taste a showcase of wines from Antinori at the beautiful winery for Col Solare in the Red Mountain AVA, Washinton.
Cheese In Jeopardy
Kevin is a menace to any food items I may hold. He is a shark, cruising for any food held below waist level.
Words, words, words....
I can't buy enough books on wine!
Grapes in Veraison
Veraison is when grapes are changing color & gaining ripeness- these beauties are heading for harvest soon!
This shirt was a gift from some amazing friends I worked with when I passed my Certified Sommelier exam! I wear it proudly!
I love barrel rooms, where wines go to wait, mature, and grow. So much hope and possibility in each and every cask!
FURT-ing with Kevin
Sometimes you need to fidgit while you reflect- Kevin is here to provide a petting surface.
They are just some leaves. I like them. Pretty.
Red Mountain Soil
The farmer kid in me is appalled that someone is making a plant try to grow here- this is SILT! But it makes great wine!
Elk Cove on Plaid
Makes me thirsty just looking at this delicious Pinot Noir from Elk Cove Winery!
Portrait of a Wine Guy
It's me. Mr. Wine Guy.
Dog In Bed, a study
Kevin will occasionally keep watch upstairs to endure no cheese escapes from snack plates. He's good like that.
Casanova de Neri
This is their "everyday" wine & it is an elegant primer for what they can produce.
The Pod Familiy
Three Boys, my "Boo" & a Wine Guy who didn't know then that he was a wine guy.
Terra Blanca Vertical Tasting
Terra Blanca Winery hosted me & some fellow wine enthusiasts to a Vertical Tasting of over 20 vintages! Amazing!
NOT a Highland Cow
Look them up- Scottish Highland Cows- They are adorable & hilarious at the same time
Spoiled For Choice
My "Wine Room" - I built a walk-in closet in my garage for storage, and it quickly got out of hand.
Roxyanne Petite Sirah
This intense dessert wine - no words. I just love dessert wines & this was a good one. :)
I have a Reading Corner in the studio for when I need Peace & Quiet while the Boys destroy pixels loudly upstairs.
My Seat Warmer
My office is in the basement, where it is cool all year round. So this is appreciated, even if he gets snippy about being moved.
Tamarack Cellars Wine
This was a lovely bottle of Cab Franc, and I was very happy with this picture.
My Little Corner
The Podcast Studio in all it's glory.
The Romeo & Juliet Wall
Passimento Wine by Familia Pasqua using the celebrated Romeo & Juliet wall for thier label- beautiful wine with an eye catching label.
Spain makes so many bubbles- when you see this label, you know you have found a great bottle!
Do I Hear Cheese?
Kevin will nap at the drop of a hat, but he is constantly alert for the slightest chance of snack.
Gift, Christmas, 2019
For days when the "Things To Do" list is getting out of hand.
The Poster of Many Colors
This is what Christi is constantly looking at- get yours from Wine Folly!
Something about these wines stirs my heart- the labels created by local artist friends, the small family intensity, the sheer quality- all of it.
Captured this not-so-rare sighting of the " Biggus Doofus " ;)
When I was an actor, we used to do "Trust Falls" in order to learn to rely on our fellows. Kevin needs no such training.
It's Pouring Inside
Beautiful. This is the beginning of a moment, when all things are possible.
We All Need This
I see you. I believe in you. Whatever your challenges, you got this.
Alto Monayo Veraton
A rich & opulent garnacha from Spain. Such a great expression of this very versatile grape!
Doin' the Dunkins
I spent several years in Rhode Island, where Dunkin' Donuts is not just a coffee, it's an institution. I fell hard & still love it today.
Who's In Charge?
The answer is, of course, not me. The Kevin must not be moved, upon pain of great disgruntlement.
Vintage Dad Cake
This was for my latest birthday from my sons, who totally get me.
Cute as a...
