A Career in Food and Wine

winemaking at UC DavisSo, a decade ago, our parents would have thought we were literally nuts to want to work in the food or wine industry right?  I mean, who wants the long hours, which mostly occur when other people are not at work-right?

For many of us, those odd hours became commonplace when we were students and continued to be commonplace once we were out for a simple reason-we couldn’t find a regular job.

Recently I gave my parents a wine gift baskets free shipping gift certificate for one simple reason-they love wine and have been very encouraging to me in terms of working in the industry. They have been so cool in fact that they are encouraging me to go to UC Davis to learn how to become a winemaker.  What gets better than that?
