About wine, sommelier art, and traveling
Welcome to my author's blog about wine! For more than five years, I have been exploring the world of winemaking, looking for unique wines, and traveling to the famous oenological regions. During all this time, I managed to collect an exclusive collection of wines from Spain, Italy, and Argentina, and to structure my knowledge about winemaking in expert articles for professional publications.
In my blog, I share with wine connoisseurs not only tasting notes and the best routes for traveling. I want to tell you about the exceptional specimens that I managed to find. About wineries that create a unique product and about all the subtleties of production, consumption, and collecting of wines. Here you will find only selected brands and objective ratings.
WINE IS AN ENDLESS ABUNDANCE OF EMOTIONS AND IMPRESSIONS. CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITE WINES, BUT DO NOT STOP LOOKING FOR NEW FLAVORS AND AROMAS. AFTER ALL, AS THEY SAY, WHO DOES NOT TAKE RISKS, HE DOES NOT DRINK VEUVE CLICQUOT!
Exploring new terroirs and grape varieties, tasting sessions, competitions, and an irresistible desire to learn more about wine allows me to constantly discover new facets of this luxurious drink.
I remember a time when I was an average consumer who prefers semi-sweet drinks, considers dry wines "sour", believes in the myth of "powdered" wine, and if the wine paints the teeth and tongue, then it is necessarily artificial. I sincerely appreciate this period. It was the gaps in my knowledge, my determination, and my great desire to create a new version of myself that helped me achieve everything I had planned.
But even now, when I talk to professionals in my field, founders of wine brands, oenologists, and sommeliers, I do not want to become a wine snob, talk to my readers in the language of special terms and talk about wines that can only be purchased at Sotheby's.
Here I write about my own impressions of wine and travel, explain in detail how and with what it is better to combine different wines, as well as share gastronomic discoveries. If you want to read about terroirs, aging, oak barrels, Malbec, and decanting in clear language – my blog is just for you!

Wine Ratings & Tastings
WINE RATINGS AND TASTINGS - SHARING MY FINDINGS AND TELL YOU ABOUT THE BEST WINERIES
Tastings and trips to wineries help me expand my horizons and find new unique examples of world winemaking, which I want to share with my readers. In my portal, you will find ratings of carefully selected wines, their author's descriptions with my tasting notes, and foodpairing tips.
I will also tell you about my trips to the Ribera del Duero wineries in Spain, which inspired me to learn Spanish, and an excursion to the Vinos de La Luz winery in Argentina, which impressed me even more. I will write about all this and other trips in my blog.
