After a long, busy day, there is nothing quite like a great glass of wine or beer to help forget about work and settle into a relaxing evening. I started A Glass After Work as a wine enthusiast about to embark on my first class at the Washington Wine Academy. It was the perfect opportunity to share my experiences with friends and other wine lovers. Since then, I not only completed my Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 2 Intermediate Certificate in Wines and Spirits, but also my WSET Level 3 Advanced Certificate, a Certificate on Andalusia and its Wines and certification as a Spanish Wine Educator through the Wine Academy of Spain.
I haven’t changed careers or quit my day job working on federal policy and legislation, but what started out as my taking wine course to further my interest has developed into deep passion for wine. And, ultimately, that’s what this blog is all about—an honest, straight-forward look at wine as I explore, learn about, and taste my way through “A Glass After Work.”
