Wanderlust

A chronicle of adventures and musings of an oenophile, gastronomer and raconteur.

The view from my bachelor trip.
Watching a huge group of dolphins frolicking just off point dume in Malibu. What soul cleansing sight.
Finally chasing my wanderlust. Its been too long.
Puro vino por vida.
Breaking down and organizing a $50k wine cellar. Wtf have I gotten myself into!?
Picked up my WSET level 2 certification today. Hopefully I have time this winter to knock out my CMS Certified Sommelier Exam and the wine society’s Certified Specialist of Wine exam.

Dark sparkle. I hosted and promoted this fancy dirty little dance party for some seven years in SF. My old partners have been holding annual reunions but I haven’t been back. 
Driving up the coast today. Tonight, Michael Sparkle returns.
