There is more to this site than just me. Here are just a few of the characters that play a role in my life. Every so often, they may make an appearance in a post.
Doesn’t her nickname say it all? She’s my MAMA! She is my go to when it comes to all things Bordeaux.
My fiercest defender. The one person I love more than my Mom. My guidance. My inspiration.
The Kentucky Best Friend: Shannon
I love this woman. I call her “Kentucky Shannon” in conversation because a) that’s where she’s from and b) I know too many Shannon’s!! If I’m ever stumped on a pairing, she is the first person I reach out to. Why wouldn’t I? She’s a CIA-trained chef who has a whole list of amazing accomplishments that go beyond her culinary training. We often complain about how her state can send their bourbon all over the world, yet I can’t send her wine without an act of Congress.
The St. Louis Best Friend: Mandy
Mandy lives in the St. Louis area, but would drop everything to come to Washington state. I am often her “supplier” for good wines. I also provide her with empty bottles for her wine bottle candle business, Grapes of Wax.
Russian James Bond: Nameless
Russian James Bond (aka RJB) is…special to me, we’ll leave it at that. My rock, my sunshine, my strength, my sanity.
