The Love of Wine….

Blog author Nicole LoCiceroI love finishing off a day with a glass of wine. There’s nothing better than unwinding from a long day of work with a rich, ripe, fruity glass of wine. A glass of wine that continues to evolve in the mouth even after swallowing. That one swish of excellent ripeness that leaves you looking forward to the next sip.

Red, white, bubbly I drink them all. Dry, fruity, sweet it doesn’t matter. My favorite part of a glass of wine is the aroma. I look back and remember being teased for smelling my wine before I sipped it. Little did I know my future would revolve around wine.

It started just after college, when I hunted for jobs, I remember interview after interview for boring jobs, and I got nowhere. I was waitressing and living at my parent’s house.  I’ll never forget the moment when I decided to open a wine shop. I was drinking wine with my Mom in her kitchen. I decided at that moment over a glass of merlot (ok maybe a few) that I would be in control of my own destiny, and that I would create my own success. The way that would happen would be opening a business. It was then, when my Mom said, “You love wine! Why not open a wine store?” This is when it all began.

The wine buzz wore off in the morning, yet I was still motivated like the speed of wine soaring down an aerator. Now, 13 years later, my love of wine has developed into a successful family business called WineVine Imports. We’ve learned so much over the years about wine accessories, wines, decanting, wine storage, wine barrel furniture, wine travel and so much more.

I hope you enjoy my blog. Here, I write about wine gadgets that really work. It is hard to believe that a wine accessory can change the taste of wine, however they actually do! I’ll share my wine travel experiences to vineyards, reviews on wine country stays and insider tips on what not to miss on your wine vacations. I’ll introduce you to great wines, as well as integrating wine style into your daily decorating lives through wine furniture, wine art and unique cork artwork.

This site is not only for us to share our knowledge and experiences with you. I would love to hear your stories, experiences and knowledge about wine, and our viewers would too. So, please share your wine experiences and reviews about the love of wine.
