A foodie and wine lover, Melissa calls beautiful Napa Valley home. Her passion is the story behind the grape—the winemaker, family history, or vineyard stories from locals living in Napa Valley. A doctor by day, aspiring wine writer by night, Melissa is a contributor to The SOMM Journal, Tasting Panel and Clever Root Magazines. Melissa has completed the Italian Wine Professional training and is currently enrolled in a Master of Burgundy Course, with plans to complete WSET 2 this summer.
