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.

Two Saints Winery (written Jul 29, 2018)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
We met the vintner at the Iowa Farmers Market in Des Moines, and liked the dry reds we sampled there, so stopped at the winery on the way back to Indianola. Very nice visit with his wife in the tasting room, which by the way is very well appointed and homey. All the wines are good, and I left with the Edelweiss - the best I tried on the trip. A must visit if in the area!

Summerset Winery (written Jul 29, 2018)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Another good visit in Iowa - a very friendly outgoing server combined with a very nice tasting room and some excellent wine made for a great day! The wines were all good, the Foch a little harsh, but everything else was perfect. Stayed for a glass of the semi-dry Vignoles - extra good out on the deck - best way to finish the day! I would recommend this stop to anyone.

Snus Hill Winery (written Jul 29, 2018)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 3 stars
Odd visit - the owner/host acted like we were keeping him from something more important, though a rushed tasting, he was friendly. We were the only ones there, so not sure why the rush (maybe he had to pee). The grounds and tasting room are very nice, the landscaping outstanding. Everything is cat themed (a plus for the wife. The wines were good, but none really stood out as special. An overall good visit, but from the other reviews and my own experience - keep an open mind.

Penoach Vineyard and Winery (written Jul 29, 2018)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Wow - what a visit! From the drive up the lane I knew this would be a good one. The winery is very nice - an old barn setting, and the owners/hosts were fun, friendly and knew wine extremely well - quite the conversation. And the wines - every one was great! The Noiret was fantastic, loved the La Crescent. A must stop if your in the area!
