  1. The Honesty of Wine

    The world of wine is so dynamic. You can learn about geography, chemistry, history, culture and gastronomy. There are endless rabbit holes of discovery with wine. It is such a diverse field of study, but at the end of the day, it’s still a food product. It’s something to consume and share with loved ones. There’s a tangible honesty to wine, and I think that really drew me in to study it and pursue it professionally.
