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.

Holtkamp Winery (written May 27, 2019)
Wine: 5 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 5 stars
Great dry wines - you have to try the Robert! Very nice winery out in the country with a great family doing all the work. You shouldn't pass this one up!

Madison County Winery (written May 27, 2019)
Wine: 4 stars Winery: 4 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
Wines were decent, owner/server was very friendly, nice location. 2 apple wines stood out, but were sweet - candy apple and cinnamon apple.

IG Winery (written May 17, 2019)
Wine: 3 stars Winery: 5 stars Ambiance: 4 stars
On the plus side, a very nice winery - easy to find in town and very friendly server that knew wine really well. On the negative - 20 dollars for 4 tastes of mediocre wines. Between wife and I we spent $40 on a red/white tasting and only found 2 wines to our liking (dry riesling and cabernet). Wines were all overpriced in my opinion. You may not find it that way, so stop in if your in the area.

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!
