This Wine Adventure in Context


Over the years I have built a mental image of what wine means to me. The more wine I experience, the more I want to experience and the more that mental image changes.

My original entry into the world of wine was focused on one specific region. Washington state wine. Today, my focus encompasses the world of wine. Not just wine reviews, but wine country travel and lifestyle. Don't we all want to live the "Wine Country Lifestyle?"

Personally, I want to continue to travel the world of wine and share with you what I learn, in context.

Definition of context - Merriam-Webster Dictionary
1 : the parts of a discourse that surround a word or passage and can throw light on its meaning
2 : the interrelated conditions in which something exists or occurs : environment, setting the historical context of the war

There is a world of wine waiting to be discovered. I hope what I share inspires you to create your own wine adventures. Stay tuned as I hone my focus. There is much to share.

- William, The Context of Wine. 

'One can be mesmerized by charismatic, local wines. Focusing on the dinner table, he said we must "take time for time, and wine." As wine and winery professionals, we should speak of place; the heritage and history. With comfort comes learning, experience, and reflection. This is the catalyst to conversation.'
