A Man with a Plan


Some people climb the Seven Summits, while those with the legs run a marathon in every state. There's an obsession for everyone who has the cash to pursue it. Me, I'm going to drink wine from every U.S. state. Why? When I heard that each and every state in the U.S. produces wine, bingo! Why not combine my love of research, wine, and travel into one ginormous project? Chances are that I won't get to each state to an actual winery, but that is the goal. Along the way, I'll buy (or hopefully receive) a bottle or two or twenty from the different states. I'll look into the state's overall wine production, interact with the wineries, and then publish some tasting notes on the wine's themselves.


  1. Awesome :) Can't wait to read about your research!!

  2. That sounds like an awesome goal, I would be way more inclined to be a wine 50 stater than a marathon 50 stater. :) Let me know if you come to Maine, I will be a "guest judge" :)

  3. I like the sounds of this! When you and Laima decide you want hit Md, we'll be happy to play host (although I can't promise the wine is good here!)
