Hi! My name is Erika and welcome to With Love Paper and Wine. A blog about wine and my Winederlusting adventures through Wine countries. I started With Love, as a spin off from my current company, Paper Villa. My love and passion for wine was given to my my father. My father was overly passionate about wine and always wanting to know more. I've been a long time resident of Temecula and moved here in 1990. Growing up, we had grape vines growing in our backyard since we had a large slope. My parents never made wine, but the curiosity in wine ignited my father to want to learn more. My father passed away from cancer in 2009, and since then I have taken it upon myself to continue my father’s passion for wine. I've had the blessing to have traveled to Europe and visit family in France on several occasions. This is where I was introduced to French wines and my journey for learning about wine began. Back in 2005, I worked at one of the local Temecula Wineries for several years, which is where the wine tasting began. Further, I'm not a sommelier and I don't pretend to know a lot, just a little. So if you ever see me talk about wine, remember thats its from a wine enthusiasts perspective. So follow me as I travel to as many wine countries as possible. My boyfriend also happens to work in Napa three times a month, so I love love love tagging along and visiting Sonoma/Napa and learning more about wine! Salud!
