How do I add an image to my profile?

About:
Just an average middle aged guy that enjoys wine and travel. My taste tends toward the dry and semi-dry, but I enjoy sweet wine as well (it has it's place!). I'm also an award winning photographer and always have a camera with me. My wife is also a photographer and an award winning jewelry designer, and she loves the winery travels as well.

Strong Tower Vineyard and Winery (written Dec 24, 2017)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
A really nice visit to a neat winery. The older house tasting room is very warm and inviting. Our server knew the wines sold here very well and shared information about the area as well. The wines are what you expect in Florida - Muscadine and fruit wines. The Blueberry and Noble are done as a dry and sweet, and are very interesting. Overall a very good visit.

Dakotah Winery (written Dec 24, 2017)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
This was a very good visit - the grounds are very interesting - lots of kitschy stuff and a nice koi pond out back. The winery itself is very nice and spacious with a large tasting counter. Our server was very knowledgeable about wine, and had a lot of information/history of the wines produced here. They have 3 dry's made from imported juice (Chardonnay, Merlot and Cab Franc) that were good. The rest of their wines are Muscadine (Noble and Carlos) along with Blueberry and Blackberry. A very good visit and well worth going out of your way to find.

Emerald Coast Wine Cellars (written Dec 22, 2017)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
Stopped at this winery this afternoon, and had kind of a "meh" experience. The winery sits nestled in a condo canyon across the street from the beach, and has very limited parking. Wasn't bad on the first day of winter - off season locally. But I imagine in the summer parking is a huge issue. The winery itself is O.K. - more space dedicated to Kitsch than to wine (but it is touristy Florida). The counter attendant wasn't really all that friendly and offered little information about the wine unless pressed. The wines themselves - the Chardonnay was lighter fluid, the Merlot not much better, but the semi/sweet wines that we tried were good. If your in the area, stop by and see for yourself - you might find a wine you like!

St. Clair Winery and Bistro Albuquerque (written Oct 09, 2017)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 3 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
Another great winery visit! The staff were extremely nice, giving us advice on things to do and see in the area (the tip on the Old Town restaurant was right on). The winery itself was nice and inviting, and the wines were all above average. The standout wine for us was the semi-dry riesling. So good we bought a bottle to take back to the room to chill and have with a relaxing snack while watching t.v. This is another must do winery if you find yourself in Albuquerque. And don't be like Bugs - make the left turn!
