Planting the Seeds

Why have I decided to become a Sommelier, you ask? Well, apart from the obvious "wine not!" answer (sorry, couldn't resist), my husband and I came very close to purchasing some land in Prince Edward County last year on a "whim" - an up-and-coming wine region in south-eastern Ontario, Canada. Not having any previous knowledge of grapes, wine making, or what the heck we were getting ourselves into, we were going to put some grapes in the ground and do some serious "learning on the job" while the grapes grew over 4-5 years! We actually said, "how hard can it be?"
Naive? maybe. Adventurous? always!
