A Warm Welcome to Julie and Aaron


I would like to welcome Julie and Aaron as contributing authors to this blog!  I met my now sister-in-law and brother-in-law in the late 1990s when I first started working in Seattle.  Jenn introduced me to her brother David Aaron during one of their visits to Seattle.  Julie and Aaron subsequently moved to Sergy, France so that Aaron could work at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.  During the summer of 1999 I flew out to Switzerland so that I could vacation with Jenn, Julie, and Aaron.  For one adventure we all piled into their car and drove out to spend several days in Burgundy.

Julie, Aaron, and their two daughters returned to Switzerland about one year ago.  They currently live in the village of Meyrin.  When they are not at home drinking the local wines of Switzerland they are visiting the Rhone, Beaujolais, and Burgundy.  Through their collective years living in France and Switzerland they have amassed interesting knowledge about wine.  They will be posting about the Swiss and French wines they encounter during their daily life.

    Thanks, Aaron! I hope that our notes will be helpful! Hi to Kak as well! We are soaking up the Swiss experience this time. It’s great being right on the border. Off to meet friends in Florence next weekend! We’ll try to taste some wines there, Aaron! Any suggestions?
