I am a hopeless romantic, a heart on my sleeve, utterly passionate lover of all things Italian. It was one of the highlights of my life when I learned that I had Italian blood in my veins. Yes! The food, the people, the country itself, the language, and most especially the wines - what can I say, except that I am smitten. That said, I am hardly a one trick pony. Wine-wise, I am passionate about Burgundy, an ardent lover of German wine, a freak for Chateauneuf du Pape, and,well, I could prattle on and on . . . I suppose I could summarize it more succinctly, and just admit that I am a slave to my senses, an utterly unabashed hedonist! Yup, that's me.

BragBox:

Not a brag, but I am using this forum to announce with considerable glee that I am at last fully at work on my book:

Mount Etna: Godly Mountain, Divine Wine

Sharp readers will recognize this title as the title of my ongoing Etna blog here. What can I say? I thought it was a great title. In any case, the book is the project that took me fifty years to realize. I will write often about Etna and its wines, and I hope my single-minded focus is not too off-putting to you. I have this tendency to become obsessive sometimes. What can I say? I always chase after my passions.

I hope you will enjoy.
