About Me

About Me: Eric Hwang

Eric HwangI consider myself a Renaissance man. I believe that every person should be fairly self-sufficient, use the talents they possess and gain knowledge to improve one’s self. I believe that every guy should be able to create a tasteful web site, sail a yacht, save a life, build a cabinet, bake a fruit pie from scratch, ski an expert run, catch a fish, frame a house, cook a gourmet meal, dive a blue hole, perform CPR, understand a wine label, climb a mountain, make a door, seduce a woman, shoot the rapids, handle a gun, ride a horse, write a SQL query, hem his pants, ride a century, grow his own food, speak a foreign language, pitch a tent, bake a loaf of bread, install a water heater, paint a masterpiece, rig a sailboat, change a diaper, feed the hungry, take a life, ask forgiveness, and live to tell about it—specialization is for insects.

Not including drinking Boone’s Farm in high school, I’ve been tasting and drinking wine for the last 30 years. This doesn’t make me an expert or a wine critic and I don’t claim to be one. However, I do have an opinion and this blog is a collection of my opinions. Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to taste thousands of different wines from all around the world and have established friendships with many winemakers, sommeliers, and other influential people in the wine industry. I live in the Seattle area with my wife, Sheri, and our toy poodle, Bolo.
