Memorable Wine

There have been so many, but probably a dinner with all five 1961 and 1962 Bordeaux First Growths! Amazing!


First Wine

I was too young to remember my first ever wine however I started drinking wine when on a French exchange visit in the Loire Valley at age 13, diluted with water of course, which is the way all French kids start to enjoy their national beverage!


Unusual Wine Experience

Spending time with the late Didier Dagueneau in his heyday. I stayed with the family overnight in Poully-sur-Loire, sleeping on the floor of his son's room after enjoying a sumptuous but simple dinner prepared by his wife and accompanied by his incredible Pouilly Fume, including the exquisite Silex. His three year old son corrected my French, with an endearing lisp!


Current Fav Wine

I am particularly partial to all of Catena wines from Argentina. The Malbec is extraordinarily good value!
