You say goodbye and I say hello
Thank you for joining me in my wine journey. I have now documented every wine trip I have taken so far in this personal wine journal. It has been a tremendous experience and an invaluable growing opportunity to visit so many countries and meet with so many talented wine producers that I can’t help but feel incredibly blessed.
After running my own Wine Bar in New York for the last 2 and a half years, I have finally taken the plunge and decided to become a chef. From February 2010 to June 2010 I will be studying Culinary Arts at the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners in Flores da Cunha, a rural tiny town in the southern most state of Brazil.
For those not familiar with it, the south of Brazil has a staggering number of Italians and Germans settlers and it is the largest and most important wine producing area of Brazil. If you want to check how I am doing, read my postings under Culinary School, a category dedicated entirely to my studies at the ICIF. All other wine related entries will be posted under Wine Journal. I look forward to going back to school and to reporting all about it here. Stay in touch.
