So you might be wondering how we first came up with this idea. First a quick background - Pacific Coast Palate was started by myself (Chananit), my husband Che, and my in-laws. Realistically, I will probably be the primary person who regularly updates this blog, as Che is a horrible typer, and my in-laws are...well, of the baby-boom generation and thus not quite up to speed on this form of social media. :) Our serious love for wine really started back in 2006 when Che and I went to my friend Winny's birthday celebration in Santa Ynez Valley. I am proud to say that I am the one who coordinated the majority of the great weekend which ultimately started this obsession for wine and wine tasting. Some months later, Che and I actually stumbled upon Paso Robles on our way from LA to the Bay Area and we have been going there every since. Every time we went, we discovered more wineries to fall in love with and managed to become members at several favorites. A trip to Paso became a regular trip for the both of us - so much so that we ended up celebrating our marriage there this past April! The wedding weekend with our families sparked this idea of starting "some sort of wine business" -- and while we don't quite yet know this "wine business" will be, we are hoping you will join us as we embark on this journey of keeping our palates open to different wines of the world, while continuing to stay true our first love - new world-style wines found along the pacific coast region.
Oh, I should mention that we moved from LA to Boston, MA in August of 2009 - and haven't particularly enjoyed ourselves in this city. The winter was awful and we REALLY miss our friends. Now that the weather has started to warm up, we are trying to enjoy the NE as much as we can until we can move back to the West Coast as quickly as we can!
