Confessions of a self-proclaimed “wine dork”
June 1, 2010 § 2 Comments
My name is Suzanne Watkins, and I’m a wine dork… and proud of it.
I love wine and all things wine related. But more than anything, I love learning about wine.
I think it all started with my Italian great uncle.
“Wine with food,” he’d say to the nine year-old version of me. “It’s our culture.”
He gave me my first sip (though not at nine), and I never looked back. Once I turned 21, winery hopping became my hobby: my swirling, sniffing, sipping past-time of choice.
Mix my love of wine with an insatiable desire to learn (a.k.a. dork), and here I am.
And from here on out, I’ll be bringing you fun facts for fellow wine dorks from behind the scenes at Sunset Hills Vineyard.
