Three More Durham Converts

Saturday I had the pleasure of meeting Mike, Mariana and their 14 month old, Tommy, at the wine store.  They are self proclaimed foodies and serious wine lovers.  Today they live in CA, but soon they will be new Durhamites.  Mariana is a sommelier originally from Argentina.   Mike works in the tech industry and they have an opportunity to move to the Triangle since his company has offices here.  With the cost of living so high in CA they were interested in moving to NC to grow their family and as Mike put it, actually get ahead by affording a house.  

Their preliminary research led them to considering Cary and Raleigh for housing, but after a few days of driving around and hearing good things about Durham, they came westward to check it out and that's when I met them at the shop.  They had heard about Wine Authorities from people in CA, which was surprising for me.  After hearing their story, I preached the Durham gospel and in a few hours, they agreed Durham seemed like a better suited home for their lifestyle.  They wanted to know more.  I gave them a list of blogs to check out when they got home.  We also offered to spend some time with them on Sunday to show off the city.

Sunday we pointed out the finer points of Durham even further, and after a few beers at Tyler's in American Tobacco, they are leaving for California ready to make plans to move to Durham. They will be a welcome addition to the local scene of great people making up our fabric.

I love wine.  It's been a source for meeting some of the best people in the world. - Salamanzar
