My name is Nick Stengel and I am coming to the end of the beginning in my quest to become a Master of Wine. This journey will take years, and I hope to recount my tasting notes, ruminations on statistics and economics, travelogs, book reports, and pictures along the way. Enjoy and please comment often!
Happy New year to my eight dedicated readers of this blog! This is a quick post to catch everyone up on my journey and a promise to post at least semi-frequently from this point forward.
I changed jobs and am now the manager of Out of Site Wines in Vienna, VA. So I am no longer a chef and I am really enjoying both the challenges of learning the business and the increased work-life balance brough by no longer heading a kitchen. I did apply, and have been accepted to study at the Institute of Masters of Wine. The first seminar is in a week in Austria, and I am excited. Meanwhile, I study and taste. More to come!
