Welcome, Jay. Tell us a little about yourself. How did you get interested in wine? What wines do you like? Please feel free to ask questions. You will find that there are many knowledgeable and courteous contributors, here, who love to show off--in a knowledgeable and courteous way. ;-)

Sometimes what we like to show off is how little we know... and definitely how little we knew when we first thought we knew something about wine. What most of us learn here is that wine is woven into human history, and has a lot to teach us about geography, history, and just about any aspect of our contact with and attempts to control nature. Best of all, you'll never learn everything there is to know about wine, because there are so many grapes growing in so many places and so many people turning them into wine. But by knowing a little something about wine, you can find yourself in a great conversation with someone almost anywhere in the world.
So welcome, and tell us more about yourself, what you like to drink and when you first decided that wine was something you were interested in. It's a great group of personalities here, everyone brings a little something to the conversation.
