I have always wanted to understand the art of wine. I should be an expert. After all, I lived in Sonoma County, California for three years. Despite that, I still don't really understand wine; I can't tell a muscato from a chardonnay.

Every time I buy a wine with the idea of making an impression, even when I pay big bucks, I strike out.

Thursday night (October 6th) right here in San Angelo, I might finally get to redeem myself. There will be a great selection of wines at The San Angelo Food and Wine Festival October 6th from 7 - 10 p.m. at the Pop Art Museum 125 Twohig San Angelo.

I can't wait to experience all the sounds, flavors and bouquets of this incredible event right here in San Angelo. I might even gain a better understanding of how to pair wine with food. After all, the holiday party season is right around the corner.
