There’s nothing more satisfying than picking out the perfect wine for the evening from your wine collection and sharing it with your guests. My name is Steve O’Malley and I’ve been a wine collector for over 30 years.

The first time I tasted wine, I didn’t especially like it. I was a beer drinker all through my twenties until one day a friend brought over a vintage bottle of merlot. I’d never tried the variety before, or any type of quality wine for that matter. As soon as I took the first sip, I knew I had discovered something wonderful.

Fast forward 30 years and here I am giving advice and tips to aspiring collectors and wine connoisseurs. I previously worked in the Chicago wine industry as an importer. I have collected thousands of vintage wines from all over the world. My affinity for antiques has also led me to become somewhat of an expert on antique cooking ware. As a collector, I love to share, discuss, and help others who also collect or want to start collecting.

Here on my site you’ll find tips on how to start your own wine collection, informative articles on different kinds of wine, and also tips and advice on antique kitchen ware. Feel free to read through and comment on any of my articles. Check back often as I’ll update this site regularly with new info and interesting wine related topics. Thanks for visiting my site!
