I moved to New York City over 20 years ago from New
Orleans, Louisiana with just a couple of pieces of luggage, tons of
enthusiasm in my heart, and a never say die attitude. I did not have a
“real” home growing up or sense of family, but found my family and home
in this crazy city with the colorful wine biz . New York City has the
greatest variety of the two things I love most: Wine & Characters.
I’m here to celebrate the diversity of wine and the characters in the
wine biz that cross my path in NYC – as well as me crossing their paths
when I travel to other awesome areas around the world!
I have an electrical engineer husband, Ken, who is as nerdy about
wine as I am, currently a Masters of Wine candidate, WSET Diploma
graduate, and recently became the Wine Columnist for La VOCE di New
York. I have over a decade worth of experience selling various wines
from around the world in the Manhattan market, such as entry level large
brands, small artisanal producers, and ultra premium fine wines.
Cheers, Cathrine Todd
