I worked as an investigative reporter, news anchor and even executive producer and host of my own talk show. I was also a finalist in the search for a co-host with Regis Philbin appearing on the show twice when Kathie Lee left (and yes, he’s very nice). I’ve worked with some incredible people. We changed lives… even changed state laws.
Fate has always been my biggest ally. It was fate that got me in the news business, and I believe fate is responsible for bringing my passion for wine, food and travel to fruition. After 17 years at the same television news station, I am venturing off in a new and exciting direction. Now, this fabulous world… what I describe as the ‘real’ world outside the news bubble has unfolded. So c’mon—let’s continue to journey — together we’ll have a great time and discover some great wines and fun people along the way.
If you have a story idea, question about wine, restaurants or something else, please email me and tell me about it.
This is a beautiful time of year to visit some Hill Country wineries. The grapes are ripening on the vine and a beautiful site to see. There are tons of wineries in our area, and one of my favorite trails is right along 290 between Fredericksburg and Johnson City. You can make a weekend of it by staying at the charming Cotton Gin Village in Fredericksburg and exploring the region from there. Plus, dinner at the Cabernet Grill, the on site restaurant, is always fabulous and they feature Texas best wines.
If you’d like to see more about the Cotton Gin & Cabernet Grill head to my Goodtaste.tv. Check out the chef’s recipe for a watermelon grilled shrimp—it’s delish.
