I am a wine enthusiast, but I'm not the snobby type. My wine obsession started when I was in college, and my parents gifted me with a great bottle of Bordeaux. It wasn't long after that I began to educate myself about all things related to wine – how it's made, what grapes are used, where it comes from, etc. My love for wine has continued to grow over the years. Traveling to Tuscany, France, and more recently to Napa Valley further fueled my passion for wine. I consider myself a Francophile, which is why I am excited about the opportunity to visit the beautiful country of France this year.
