To Linda Whipple, CSW, wine is a lens for understanding the geography, people, and culture of a place. A Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) through the Society of Wine Educators, Linda earned her Advanced (Level 3) certification with distinction from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. She’s been grateful for the grape and all things growing since embarking on this journey of discovery over 10 years ago. What most inspires her is wine that is both high-quality and sustainably-made – from vineyard to cellar. Find her musings about life and vine on her blog, My Full Wine Glass.
