Wish me luck! I'm packing and heading up to Seattle this weekend to take my first Court of Master Sommelier course and exam. I'll be spending two full days learning about methods of viticulture, vinification and local customs for major wine regions, production methods, wine service, harmony of food and wine, and tasting skills. At the end of the two day course, I'll talk a comprehensive exam, which is required to pass in order to continue onto the Advanced Course and Exam.
I'm very excited to formalize and enhance my wine knowledge and share it with you! Look out Larry Stone :)
