Have you ever experienced a time in your life when things just go your way?
When your dedication and hard work finally start to pay off?
I am experiencing this first hand right now and it is beyond amazing.
The best part? It’s all about what I am passionate about.
I have been asked to be a Sommelier on the floor of The 10th Annual Pinot Noir Summit in San Francisco by Barbara Drady, Chief Wine Evangelist & CEO of Affairs of the Vine.
I am beyond excited!
I will be greeting people and explaining the tasting and scoring process of the event as well as helping people with the blind tasting. This will be such fabulous experience for me. Thank you so much to Barbara for including me!
Wouldn’t you like to come? You can!
