Through the Cellar Door

Step into my Bodega.

My name is Shaughn Jenkins.
I'm a New Zealander who fell head first into the wine industry.
Please join me as I go on an adventure to discover all I can about wine and maybe I'll discover a little bit about myself along the way.

Welcome to Through The Cellar Door!
Join us to explore and learn about the amazing world of wine!
