I am in no way a professional writer. Let me repeat, I AM NOT A PROFESSIONAL WRITER. I’m merely a 30-something year old, Network Engineer/Business Development & Marketing professional, with a borderline obsessive attachment to wine, grapes, vineyards, cheese, and everything wine-related. I am just a normal guy, sharing my opinions and experiences with other wine lovers. My overall goal is to provide readers with an insight on wines and wineries that they otherwise would not be aware of, most of those in Virginia or other viticulture areas that often fly under the radar.
For me, visiting a winery is more than just paying a couple of bucks to get a few pours of various offerings from the respective pioneers. It’s about atmosphere, the tasting room, the staff, the views, and of course, the wine! I hope you enjoy the site and utilize some of the information that I put up here to enhance not only your experience in the Virginia Wine Country, but in other parts that you may not have been aware of previously.
I am an avid beer lover from outside of the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. I moved to the Northern Virginia area in 2010 and got into craft beer and homebrewing heavily around the same time. Since then I have made it one of my goals to seek out awesome craft beer and tell the world (or anyone who will listen) about it. Like Anthony, I am not a professional writer by any stretch of the imagination, but I love sharing my experiences about beer with others. I enjoy educating people about the intricacies of beer and also trying new and different beers from the ever-expanding craft beer universe. Hopefully the information that I post here will be of use to both the craft beer novice and expert alike. I like to think that I have a fairly refined palate and have tried some amazing beers and been to some amazing breweries. I aim to provide fair, honest reviews of the beers I have tasted and the places I have been, as well as provide useful information for looking to become more ingrained in the craft beer culture.
