Hi readers!

We are excited to join Daily Food & Wine, particularly the Vino Files, in our hope to share what we love about wine.  We recognize there are a lot of people out there like us who love wine and are interested in learning more but aren’t quite sure where to start. We believe that learning about wine shouldn’t be intimidating or pedantic.  Instead, it should be a subject approachable to everyone, regardless of price point or accessibility, and most importantly, discovering wine should be an enjoyable activity shared with good company!

But first, let us tell you a little more about ourselves: after moving to New York City and joining the working world, we realized that we really enjoyed a glass of wine after a long day. Then we realized that we also enjoyed wine on a Sunday afternoon.  And with dinner. But aside from the fun that often goes along with drinking wine, what we enjoyed even more was learning about the magical beverage – the history, the production, the land – and the fact that there is always an opportunity to learn more.

We invite you to accompany us in our journey to discover more about wine.  We are by no means viticulture experts nor self-proclaimed sommeliers, but we do aspire to share knowledge that is both practical and interesting. We want to show you what excites us about wine at the moment, and in the process, help you find some new favorite things!

Cheers,

Anne & Courtney
