What Is A Sommelier?

A Little Bit About Me

Hello, my name is Andi Blume and this is my wine web site. I want to personally welcome you here today and let you know just a bit about who I am and why I have this site.

' First, I am happily married to a wonderful man and we share seven children and eight grandchildren. And a still at home furry child named Scarlett OHara. She is a red head and we love her dearly. She is our beautiful Cocker Spaniel, who insisted upon having her own blog! It began as a daily diary of her life being lived with the 'Old People.' Now she blogs just whenever she feels like it (or so she has stated).
Here is a link to Scarlett's Blog Spot:

The attitude of Jesus toward wine, like
that of the entire Bible, is neutral,
praising its use and finding fault in
its intemperate use. Certainly the production
of wine at Cana (John 2:1-11)
scarcely supports any belief that Jesus or the
primitive Church regarded the use of wine as
sinful in itself." (Dictionary
of the Bible, John L. McKenzie, S.J.,1965 ).
