    What was the first time you remember drinking wine?

    "No single event got me into wine. I grew up drinking wine, so wine became part of a normal, daily experience. So now, I don’t drink to “drink,” I drink to enjoy. I never drink in the middle of the day and I never drink a serious bottle of wine alone. Wine is part of a culinary and social experience which is why I enjoy it as much as I do."
