I started Wine With Me to share my experiences with wine and my reviews of wine with both the wine novice and the fellow wine enthusiast. I want to help people learn about and develop a taste for wine.

I’m a young professional with a passion for wine. While I wouldn’t go so far as to call myself a wine expert I do have a pretty good knowledge of wine, especially for someone my age. In my opinion there is nothing better after a long hard day then winding down with a nice glass of wine and my dog Rio (She’s named after Rioja wine)!
From the moment I turned 21 I had an interest in wine. It started out as desire to seem adult and sophisticated but turned into a true love for the complexity and flavors of wine. My parents are big wine drinkers so they’ve introduced me to some pretty nice bottles of wine. I also studied in Rome, Italy for almost 5 months were it’s cheaper to drink wine than water! These experiences developed my taste for wine but it was attending a weekly wine tasting class for almost two years that developed my knowledge of wine. Ten Dollar Tuesdays at Papa Joes, in Michigan, really helped me to learn how to talk about wine and pick out individual characteristics of wines.
I’m addicted to few things but wine just happens to be one of them. And you’ll have to admit nothing is better than sitting back and having a good glass of wine after a long day. I’m not an expert but I do know good wine. I really started to enjoy wine when I turned 25. However my budget wasn’t always so agreeable with my taste in wine. Then I realized you don’t need to buy the most expensive wine in the world just need to get the kind of wine that is made well. This means if you drink it from a box you may want to pay close attention to what Dana and I have to say.
I currently work in the New Media industry but don’t let that fool you. I may love technology but I do love the old world process of wine making. Remember winemaking is an art form that will speak to you in different ways.
