  1. Exceptional work, Erin! I couldn’t be more proud of your commitment and achievements. To be perfectly honest, I could expect no less from someone of your ability and am excited to watch your continued success.

  2. Erin– thanks for picking up my 200x piece in Edible Santa Fe. I will post about that on my web site tonight. You seem like an awesome woman! I went to CSF as well. I would love to meet you sometime. I work at the State Archives here is Santa Fe.

    • Hi Felicia! I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to reply, I was out of town for a wine exam. I’m glad you liked my article, and thank you so much for your kind remarks. I LOVE your posole recipe! I make it very often. And I’ve finally gotten a decent can opener! I would love to meet you sometime, maybe we can go grab a glass of wine? I’ll check out your website. Thanks again,

      Erin Brooks

  3. I loved your coverage of Omira Grill — the most innovative restaurant on the Santa Fe scene! You so beautifully expressed the unique international nature of the cuisine. This kind of restaurant experience is typically only available in big cities. We are very fortunate to have such a creative restaurant here in Santa Fe.

  4. Goof morning, Erin! I discovered your blog today after reading your very thorough article on GuildSomm. I would love to deep dive that article with you sometime. Have a great shift tonight at your restaurant!

  5. Hi Erin,
    Great article! I live in Albuquerque, and I’m interested in hosting a Sommelier for a private dinner party. Could you please recommend someone, I’m having a hard time finding someone in New Mexico.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
