I grew up in a small town, where you hunt, fish or find something else to do. I opted to find something else & found wine. Self-educated by the aid of countless books, conversations w/experts & a lot of tasting, I sought to establish a career in wine. Starting out as a private wine consultant, I moved into wholesale and then into retail.
After some time, I went west to Napa. However, I found that my love for wine couldn't compare to my love for Peter, a wine guy & a damn good one at that. I returned to Grand Rapids, MI to marry & sip with Peter. Together, we created My Wine Words.
