Hello readers and welcome to the SOMMspirations blog! My name is Brianne and I am a seasoned event producer in the LA area about to embark on a crazy two-year journey of the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, Level 4 Sommelier course. I don’t work in the wine biz, but I do LOVE wine. Ultimately, I want my readers to have fun and enjoy reading while I drop some wine knowledge. Wine is an art, and I want to share that sensibility with the world. Europeans (specifically the Italians) know how to do it: they live hard and love hard and they eat and drink unabashedly. I encourage my American compadres to slow down a bit. Enjoy your glass of wine, enjoy your meal, and enjoy your lover. The meaning of life is to live it, and there’s no better time to start than today!
I have two goals for this blog: #1 to document the journey of the Level 4 WSET course (which begins in less than a week!) and to #2 to drop some knowledge with my sweet wine skillz! Sometimes I might share a fun travel memory that includes wine, or I might share wine facts (i.e. how do bubbles get in bubbly?) in an easy to understand way. Other times I might recap a visit to a local wine country or tell you about a tasting group I participated in. With me, you always know you’re going to enjoy yourself AND learn something.
P.S. wine skillz will give you major street cred:) So, listen up and maybe share what you learn at that next cocktail party. Or impress your date by properly opening up a bottle of Champagne. Either way, be ready for a good time! Salud!
