Welcome to Lets Talk Wine, a web page all about wine and much more. 

 I bet you are wondering who I am?

Name: Joshua

Age: 37

What makes me knowledgeable in wine:  I have been working for six years at Sugarloaf Mountian Vineyards, a local vineyard/winery in the great state of MD. I have gotten certifcates in wine through Wine Spectator www.winespectatorschool.com, and have just passed my level 1 Sommelier's course. Also at one point I worked for a wine shop in Rockville, MD.


Sommelier:  You might be asking yourself what is a Sommelier and what does he do. Well I am a trained and knowledgeable wine professional who specializes in all aspects of wine service as well as wine and food pairings. This entails the necessity for a deep knowledge of how food and wine, beer, spirits and other beverages work in harmony. 


Certifications:

Understanding Wine

Sensory Evaluation

Food and Wine Pairings

Wines of Australia and New Zealand


My Mission: To talk about great wines, vineyards to visit and much, much more.

I like this quote:

"If someone drinks a little too much wine, the Italians don't say he has drunk too much; they say he hasn't eaten enough food yet."

 


I have always been a big supporter of small and local businesses, so today I would like to give a BIG shout out to one of my favorite local businesses.

THE FREDERICK BASKET COMPANY is a company that is located in the Shab Row shops of Frederick, MD. The Frederick Basket Company is a big supporter themselves   of small businesses bringing in stuff from other small companies.
