Rogue wine warrior Michael Whitehead began his wine career in San Juan, Puerto Rico, which he describes as a cross between modern Spain and 50's Havana. Luck and great fortune took him across the great wine regions of Europe, the trenches of Middle America and eventually to Napa Valley where he spent a long vacation working with a “veteran” family of the wine industry. He currently resides between Miami, Florida and Cartagena, Colombia. Besides writing about wine, Michael also consumes and occasionally sells wine, reads fiction, surfs and prepares extravagantly rich vegan desserts.
Summertime for most of the United States means the return of vegetation. Both our rural and urban areas come alive with the blossoming of flowers, the production of fruits and vegetables and the long hours of sunshine. We spend countless evenings cherishing this season. As we relax, whether on our own patio or at a neighborhood restaurant, we look for refreshing wines to share the intimate harmony between both humanity and nature.
