I've been traveling amongst vines for almost 20 years and have spent all too much time & money exploring vineyards, wineries, cideries and breweries in two dozen+ countries around the globe. With each passing season, I realize I couldn't imagine myself in another profession as this world of wine has allowed me to experience the likes of retail, importing/distribution, assistant winemaking, cellaring about, teaching, consulting, training, working the time old profession of a sommelier, and brokering on an international level. Currently, Minneapolis is home base for brokering these incredible wines, administering trainings and classes around town, shepherding a few wine lists, co-hosting a podcast, participating in a bi-weekly radio spot on Jazz 88, and hanging my retail hat at the boomin', Henry & Son!
Never have I met better folk nor consumed such intrinsic foodstuffs than these past two decades. There are hundreds of you I would thank for making my life & career post corporate world, the best decision I ever made. The list would be too long to post here. You know who you are. ¡Besos!
Although this website is almost exclusively dedicated to the bodegas that fall under Jill Mott Selections and my favorite spots whilst traveling through Spain, I would be remiss if it didn't contain other pertinent vinous or brewing topics and producers that kindle interest through photos & various blog posts.
