Being “the Wine Guy” Part 1

I realized last night, while trying to come up with a post for today, that my blog passed its two year anniversary at some point earlier this month.

About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.
