Change and Transition

I’m writing an update from this beautiful spot in Ojai, California, 100 kilometers north of Los Angeles. I left my place in Tuscany in August and after some traveling, landed here in December. I’ve been focused on teaching practices that have brought me more joy, vitality, calm, and creativity. My current offerings are on my site Come To Your Senses. My “uncorked” journey in the world of wine has been parallel to an inner journey that I’ve just begun to share.

And, for almost two years, I’ve dedicated my writing time to a book project instead of my blog here at Uncorked In Italy. After years of meeting winegrowers and learning about their wines, I want to tell their stories and my story in a different format.Even though I haven’t been writing blogposts, I’m still telling the “story in a bottle” of amazing, authentic, Italian wines I know wherever I go and supporting producers by buying and drinking their wines, even while here in the States.

The lockdown and the virus have brought a full, unexpected, and disastrous stop to winegrowers, most of whom rely on traveling to promote their wines and welcoming travelers, who want to taste their wines and see their vineyards. This is bringing terrible hardship. Continuing to order, buy, and drink these wines is a way to support the people who make the wine and the philosophy behind it.

Google your local natural wine shop and pick up a delivery. If you need suggestions check out my Resources page or contact me directly. If you have a shop that you would like to list on my site, let me know. We’re all in this together.

For winegrowers, who want to ship directly to clients, I’m ready to help forward your information. Please contact me and let me know how I can support you.

I can’t wait to be back in Italy, toasting an end to this crisis. Until then, sending gratitude and blessings to all in this community.
