Official Bio:

A beautiful wine is exquisite. It creates a beautiful memory that can last a lifetime and ties itself inextricably as it is ever changing, It is living art in a glass.

My goal is to find the wine that will make a difference in your life, the wine you want to enjoy with your most cherished experiences.

I was born and raised in Healdsburg, my father was a winemaker so I learned a love and respect of winemaking at a young age by spending my summers working in the vineyards. When I was 18 I was allowed to work in the cellar, where I realized I had no talent with making wine. I’ve worked as a Wine Educator in Napa Valley, I pursued my advanced degree in Wine Education with my WSET level 3 and then I decided I wanted more. I wanted access to beautiful wines and whiskies from around the world, not to simply be tied to one product or another. Now I have access to an amazing variety, and it is my pleasure to be able to offer that to you. My job is to figure out your taste, find wines or spirits that you will enjoy and take the headache out of it for you.

P.S. I love scotch too, enough that I made the trip to try from distilleries back in 2016.
