Hi! My name is Beau and you're reading my blog. I started this blog as a creative outlet, a way to share my passion for wine and food with my friends. It's a place to write about wine, food, and other subjects. My goal is to stimulate dialogue as well as inspire my readers to expand their wine knowledge. It is my hope that as a result of seeing my passion, my friends and readers will be more adventurous in their food and beverage choices. Other bits of background on me can be found throughout this site. I'm on twitter @beausbarrelroom or @UCBeau so please feel free to follow me and say hi.
My relationship with wine is deeply personal, because of the family connection as well as the discovery my own passion for wine. To me, wine is an integral part of daily life. It is to be enjoyed with meals, while cooking, reading, spending time with friends, or any other time you desire a glass. Wine is a form of art, and it tells the drinker a story - if we pause to listen. Yes, that is a romantic notion but one I embrace with all my heart. I hope that my passion shows through when you read about the wines I taste, the foods I cook, and the experiences I share.
