I took my passion and enthusiasm for wine and food and made it into my dream job. I have first hand experience with every vintage since 1978, and can still describe memorable wines I drank twenty years ago. I'm not a wine snob or a wine geek though. I sometimes describe myself as a wine professional, but really prefer it when someone calls me their "wine guy". Thats who I am, and I love to share that passion with anyone interested.

Rob covers a lot of ground over 7 minutes, but it was very informative. Great tips on matching meals with the appropriate wine. Put yourself at a table with guests and the waiter hands you the wine list.

I thought this was great. He stayed to the point of info that you would need & use to order wine in a restaurant (or choose some to purchase for hosting a meal at home). He was basic enough that I will be able to remember the information, but he threw in some great descriptors that we can use to sound knowledgeable in conversation.;)
