Welcome to The Wine Muse…and Other Things to Swallow!

About this Blog:

This is my place to share recipes, wine tips and tastings with you, as well as some other such musings.  Basically, this is a place for food and wine lovers.

About me:

Food and wine blogger, sommelier, oenophile, amateur chef, foodie, yogi, lover of live music, performer, event planner.

I am a Los Angeles native who has worked in the wine industry, and I am a home cook and self-taught baker.  I believe food and wine should be fun for everyone – not stuffy or uptight! I love wine, I love food, and I love finding new ways of enjoying both.

Now, let’s have some fun!  Cheers!


I would like to dedicate this blog to my talented and wonderful mother, who had a voracious appetite for life.  She was fueled by a constant desire to learn new things and experience life to its fullest.  She also remembered every place she visited by what she ate when she was there.


Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words. ~Plautus
