My life runs on JIRA – Sommelier edition

Nobody will ever accuse me of being a wine snob, what with my unsophisticated palate and refusal to spend over $30 per bottle. But I know what I like, and when I find something I like, I tend to grab a few bottles to have on hand. This has led to me to build up a modest little collection over the past few years.

My life runs on JIRA – Project Little Man
