I am a wine professional based in New York City with a career focused in retail. I have a deep appreciation for the wines of the French Alps and have worked to broadcast the stories of Savoie, Bugey, and Isére winemakers to the American drinker. Although I do understand the importance of tasting notes, my writing focuses on the people behind a wine just as much as the flavor profile it might express. My ultimate goal is to highlight those in this diverse community who make a difference. I am honored to have been selected as a fellow at the 2023 Wine Writers’ Symposium.
