As Minnesota is my headwaters, I have been in the local wine industry for awhile.
I recognize that wine is my calling and is what drives me. I love the synergy of this ardent industry, ever changing and evolving. I love the human element, the relationships that are built, the history, stories and of course the wine!
…and where there is wine, there is food. Any time of the year you will find us grilling outside on the green egg enjoying a glass of wine that pairs with the food or the occasion- we are always delighted when friends stop by, then the festivities begin!
Sharing a life with our cat and two dogs, my husband Dick and I have been a part of rescue organizations for years and have had the good fortune to be adopted by some of the best fur family members. We currently reside with our German Shepherd Loki and our Daniff (Great Dane x Mastiff) Floydd and Bearcat -a black cat who adopted us on Halloween.
During the summer months you can find me outside walking our dogs, running or hiking in our state parks or simply outside enjoying the environment. We love to listen to live music outdoors -especially local bands and any blues music. In winter we are walking dogs, skiing and embracing winter, I love it!
For these and so much more, I am immensely grateful and though I love Minnesota, I have a huge wanderlust and have been fortunate to travel to quite a few amazing destinations and always look forward to the next adventure!
