March 2023 – Wine tasting and lunch at the award winning winery, Morgado do Quintão!

December 2022 – Looking forward to more travels in 2023. Until then Happy Holidays and New Year to all.

June 2022 – Great news!  I am here now in Portugal full time.  Travel is opening up again and I have made plans to travel to the Lombardy region of Italy later this year to attend this year’s Wine Media Conference.

March 2020: Ok, well plans can change and COVID-19 has upended everyones lives this year. While I await making the move later this year, I continue to taste and sample wines while learning Portuguese.  #staysafe #stayhome

Jan 2020: Having retired in Jan. 2018, I am dedicating more of my time to my love of wines and the stories behind them.  I continued my food and wine explorations in 2019 with a 10 week trip to Portugal and Italy. I traveled all around Umbria, Tuscany and the Algarve (Portugal).  I visited several winemakers 1:1  while in Italy, so check out my reviews here.  The wine regions of Portugal are further north than my travel plans so….

I made a 2nd trip to The Algarve in late ’19/early ’20 and returned to the US with the decision to move there full time!  I know, exciting right?  There are so many wineries to explore in several of the microclimates of Portugal. I can’t wait to start.  I also look forward to the food and wine festivals and conferences held annually in Europe.

You can also follow me on Twitter or Vivino.  I am @wineflight.
