Hi, I’m Terri! I am from the Washington, D.C. area and currently live in Denver.
Wine has grown as a hobby of mine over the years. From only drinking moscato or wine with the coolest labels in college to exploring varietals from all over the world now. I started this blog as a way to post about the wines I try or wineries I visit and explore more of the wine community.
As I get older (ugh), I also find it hard to find bloggers or influencers who are similar to me as most are married with kids. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to follow them, but I feel that I’m missing a connection with someone who has a lifestyle more similar to mine. Someone I can follow for ideas or adventures or life hacks that are relevant to my personal lifestyle.
So, I also created this blog as an outlet for others who happen to love wine, travel, and life but don't necessarily relate to some of the content out there. I hope you find a place with me.
Wine has become a lowkey passion and hobby of mine over the past few years - I love going to wineries, LOVE going to wineries. I love trying different wines from different countries and learning about cultures simply through taste. It is truly an awesome experience.
I feel the same way about wine as I feel about classical music. Both are assumed to be “high-brow,” but that shouldn’t restrict anyone from appreciating or loving them. I am a firm believer that if others took the time to demonstrate how to taste wine properly or explain the nuances of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony, more people could find enjoyment without judgement.
I am by no means even close to being a sommelier nor do I really want to go down that path. If anything, I would love to own a small winery/wine bar one day where there will be lots of live music, conversation, and good friends. Maybe one day I’ll go after a WSET certification. But for right now, enjoy my little ramblings on wine, travel, and everything else - life in between glasses.
