I was fortunate enough to have some really great friends when I was in my early 20’s that were wine and food lovers.  They were a bit older (and wealthier) than me and would often invite me to a fancy dinner and open up a bottle of Opus One or an expensive Bordeaux.  Needless to say, I quickly became enamored with the culinary world.  From that point on, I spent my time learning everything I could about wine and food, seeking out some of the best restaurants in the US, and taking frequent trips to wine country.

Today I am lucky enough to live in Sonoma with my husband and fellow wine and food lover, Brandon. We created this blog, wineandgoodfood.com, to chronicle our wine tasting adventures and restaurant experiences.  Brandon and I have really come to love small, family run wineries throughout California, France, and Italy that adhere to natural winemaking philosophies.  We also are lucky enough to live in one of the best food cities in America!  We hope you guys enjoy our wine and food adventures as much as we do!
