a weekly blog about all things wine. I've been in the industry for 15
years as a winery owner, marketing director, speaker, writer, wine judge, and
100% vino girl!
I'm also a professional freelance magazine and book writer uncorking articles about wine, food, history, travel, cemetery history and culture.
