Wine Rating: 90
Remember, remember the third Thursday of November!
For anyone who’s read any of my work or who’s followed my adventures for any length of time, you know I often find my way back to tales of when I worked at my first wine store. If you’re new to my writing, this is where it all began for me.
When I was in my early twenties, I worked at a famous wine store in the Naples area of Long Beach, California. The knowledge and palate I now have for wine came from my time there, working at Morry’s of Naples. I write about that place a lot, because I loved that job and because that’s where this passion I now nurture was birthed. I loved the customers who asked inquisitive questions about wine, the owners who taught me everything about owning a business, and of course, the items that filled the shelves and I don’t just mean the wine. It was the gourmet cheeses, the caviar, the decadent pastries, the European chocolates. It was Adult Willy Wonka Food & Drink Porn.
