Official Bio:

If someone tells me they are a wine expert. I will ask them to name me their top fifty favorite varietals out of the 1,300 different varietals that are out there! I am a Napa Valley native, so I have been surrounded by the wine industry culture my whole life, except for the four years I spent in the United States Marine Corps. My career in the wine industry began in wholesale private acquisitions, and cellar management. I would travel the world helping clients manage their cellars, and I would purchase portions of their collections to resell on the secondary market. I would be exaggerating if I said I knew every in and out about the wine industry, but as your Wine Scout, I hope you will join me on the Hunt for "great stuff." Cheers!
