that everyone would treat people with respect and kindness.

The perfect day would be…

Always…

be yourself, be nice and enjoy the little things in life.

Never…

hold grudges or be afraid of change.

I love so many quotes, this is hard. You should see my quote board on Pinterest. Right now I am really loving, “Worry about loving yourself, instead of the idea of other people loving you.”

Biggest Dream…

My Pet Peeve(s)…

passive aggressiveness.

More about Samantha…

Samantha is your typical 25 year old with a passion for learning about wine and making it fun for people. After completing an Intensified Sommelier Training Program at the International Culinary Center of California, she passed her Level II certified exam through the Court of Master Sommeliers. After that she saw food and wine in a completely different way and wanted to turn her passion into a career. She created a blog to share her journey inclusing recipes, the wine she’s enjoying on a lazy Monday night after work or her wine tasting event business. Capaldi craves delicious food, extraordinary wine, and people who want to step out of their comfort zone. She hopes people can view her as a resource and example to not be afraid of the extraordinary world of wine no matter how intimidating it may seem.
