Carrie Dykes is a wine, food and travel writer living in the Hudson Valley, NY. Her byline can be found in Wine Enthusiast Magazine, Afar Magazine and Guide, SevenFifty Daily, WineTraveler, Hudson Valley Wine Magazine, Chronogram, InCider Japan and The Cork Report. When she’s not behind her computer, she is most likely off exploring, communing with wild animals, and looking for treasures in the wilderness.
She served as the Virginia wine reviewer at Wine Enthusiast for a number of years and continues to beat the drum for Virginia and other unsung wine regions. She uses the blind tasting skills learned while earning WSET Diploma when she is judging wines for the IWSC and Concours Mondial de Bruxelles among other panels.
