About Rick's WineSite
People who know me know that I taste, read and write about, buy and trade wine on a regular basis. Folks regularly ask me what I am drinking or buying. This site is to share my wine experiences: wines you can find now, distinctive, good values, wines from my cellar, a restaurant experience, and wine reference tools.
