This is my first attempt at a blog, so bear with me as this is brand new to me. Wine however is not new to me. I have created two web-sites for wine, one strictly about wine education and my consulting issues - found at noblewines.com and the other an online wine store for a client - found at hamptonswineshoppe.com.
Given my background both sites are heavily based on wine knowledge and information. My background? Well after owning a restaurant, working as a Chef in Switzerland, Austria and Manhattan, I joined the wine industry and ended up working in various aspects of the industry. All this BS can be found on either of my sites, but the highlights include being a Sommelier at The '21' Club, Wine Educator for Winebow Imports, Martin-Scott Wines, and Sherry-Lehmann Wine Merchants and a wine consultant for several Hamptons, Long Island restaurants including The American Hotel in Sag Harbor.
I still consult for Sherry-Lehmann but I also am working with restaurants and wine retailers in Long Island. Sunset Wines in Westhampton and I are working closely on this blog and other exciting projects.
Those of you in the wine industry on Long Island might know me from teaching The Sommelier Society of America Courses on Long Island and in Westchester or from my wine columns in either
