Differently so -- of -- goes with us right now author of why for women and founder of -- -- live from now I think in the -- right here in Sonoma now.
I am -- in -- checked in beautiful sunny Sonoma god bless -- I'm jealous actually I have never been and I am going to finally made my first trip out there this October.
BU let me know -- I'll take -- I'll let me enunciate that I tell me you know.
There's so much out there I have your book -- here with me this simple savvy wine guide.
There's so many books there's so many web sites how does why not -- get.
-- at all what it's amazing really when you think about it a 120000.
Wine labels are approved each year.
And so it's just you know I called the wall of wind and I think it's it's so much easier now to navigate the -- -- -- because there's information -- through social media treat the Internet.
-- it's no longer just pick up a line magazine or -- -- -- book it's really about getting recommendations from your friends and I think that has been facilitated so much more by social media.
So it's you know I'm an advocate of getting as much information as possible but ultimately you know -- and try and drink what you might well.
And that's the thing -- at the end of the day because in theory you can have a different bottle of wine every night and still never drink the mall.
I got my life right there that good run -- -- god bless you can't -- let me get it we keep going and talking about one can you tell us how you got into this.
By drinking a lot actually that's how I started a good thing about that much.
I'm I -- I came actually from.
Right -- and I'm doing some television work which I continue to do you have a television show on PBS on the West Coast and appear on national television shows quite a bit about.
So I really fell in love with line and I make my own -- and I started taking courses just out of pure passion and I was able to at some -- literally say to myself and this was set more than a decade ago.
To say to myself how can I get into drink who -- -- be limited talk about line should and so I started doing it from from that perspective in doing what I knew which was writing.
And doing some television about it.
And from that I was lucky enough to work with the new York times company and build their Internet had about wine called wind today yet and and that in the move on from there write books and continue -- so I've been lucky to -- my cash and -- it -- And he certainly -- Smart for doing it and that's idea I think there is this new found interest in -- you know an ever I I know everyone is trying to demystify.
And get the snobbery -- and get more and more people drinking -- involved.
One of the things I thought was really interesting that you said though in your notes was that women.
Have long in the majority of wine drinkers we just because even when I was a -- Mentioning drink wine as much as they had Martinis surgeon in time right -- -- right but yet they like the wind industry is dominated by men.
It's interesting to me when I first got -- to you know again about you know fifteen years ago professionally.
I I was amazed I was you know at one of the few women that was doing what I was doing which was talking about -- communicating about -- trying to demystify which I am you know I hope I've been able to do along with many others over the course the last decade.
And I think that I -- You know -- -- -- it is changing women are certainly still a majority of -- consumers out there and the beauty is that that is that the United States in 2010 became the number one -- consuming nation in the world did I.

And let me ask about women.

Going out what do you like its case to what what is your -- -- what are you cooking -- it.
You know that it will only sharing it with it's really about -- prospective.
I -- I -- -- -- last look you actually created -- to building a wardrobe.
Because I guess it's coming women can relate to but.
You know learning about -- in general can be so overwhelming.
I think that in.
Maybe the best way to do it is to just get women didn't talk about -- mean they love and then well I'll quit -- do it.
Well and from -- as a -- educator and I travel around the country educating about -- It really is.
Those returns that I use that I understood when I talked about -- it.
I logistically it is it later is it Fuller is -- or elegant as -- apple.
You know is it is it that you know rugged black pair of jeans or is -- actually black dress that you're wearing isn't the feel that you get from draping yourself in Kashmir.
That's me -- them the most beautiful -- this sort of -- -- red line.
Or is it happen on Yardley and you know wearing -- black leather pants and that's you know -- zinfandel.
So it made sense to me from a silence when you and that it that's it would amendment -- -- --
