Chardonnay Blind Tasting


The Story Behind the Chardonnay Blind Tasting Video

This Cardonnay Blind Tasting video was seven years in the making. It all started when I found my passion for wine after meeting my then-girlfriend, now beautiful wife. In 2013 I suffered a broken leg after taking an attempted murder suspect into custody. A good friend of mine, David Weso, introduced me to Wine Library TV with Gary Vaynerchuck. I binged on WLTV for the five months I was bed ridden and then it hit me. I needed to express my love for wine and take my passion to the next level.

I bought a camera and my wife and I shot a few videos here and there throughout the year. The whole thing was light and fun but I really didn’t know what I was talking about, and I really had no confidence in what I was filming. So I put the blog and vlog on hold for awhile.

Then in 2014, while watching more Gary Vee videos, I decided to do something with my passion once again. I told my wife that I was going to become a Certified Specialist of Wine. She was pleased with the news and vowed to support me in every way.

Later that year I got into another work related incident, and my tooth was cracked while getting pummeled in the face by another suspect. I cracked a bone in my wrist while affecting the arrest and was back on light duty for a short period. It was at this point that I said ” Enough! I am scaling it back a bit and getting serious about wine, beer, and spirits!” I really hunkered down and got my study on. In January 2016 after volunteering (literally volunteering)  at a local wine shop for a year and studying my brains out, I passed my CSW exam. In July, 2o16 I passed my Somm1 course and on July 17, 2016 I launched After three awesome months, Jamaal Porter demanded I do a video. So with out further a due… I present Ep. 1 Chardonnay Blind Tasting!
