After working for restaurants, wine stores and distributors, Dan Rinke developed an interest in organic/biodynamic wines and enrolled in winemaking courses at Fresno State in California.

sawinery's curator insight, April 5, 2013 3:37 PM

"We have responsibilities too. Yes, yes, of course you should drink what you like. But let me be blunt: Don't tell me what a great wine lover you are if all you want to drink is the same handful of wines. Today more than ever there is an increasingly big difference between a wine drinker (once rare in America, but no more) and a wine lover (a rare creature anywhere)."


Bravo! We couldn't have said it better, wine is to be explored, it's an adventure. Be on the lookout to add new experiences and wines to your favorites list... expanding that list is the fun part!
