About Me

I love what I do:  selling some great wine (much of it Italian and of the indigenous grape variety), educational tastings, and just showing overall passion for the world of wine! I hold the WSET diploma in Wines & Spirits, am one of only 15 Italian Wine Experts through the Vinitaly International Academy (VIA),  & a certified VIA Educator teaching the newly formed VIA Italian Wine Maestro Program. I recently completed the Italian Wine Scholar Guild certification. Sometimes I even get to be a wine judge, both internationally and locally!

When I’m not doing things related to wine, I enjoy meeting with friends, evening chats with my husband, watching football, making cards, riding my bicycle, reading (for pleasure), meeting new people and playing the piano. I love sharing my passion of wine which I do during wine tastings with my company Joy of Wine. I hope I exemplify that joy every time I talk to anyone about wine! I want to share my passion of wine, and maybe give some options on choosing wine to drink with your friends, on the patio, or with an opulent 5-course meal. Whatever the occasion, I’d like to help you create an amazing experience with wine!

Check out the various personal and corporate packages I have to offer under the tabs “Wine Services”, then give me a call or send me an email, to book YOUR private home or Corporate package tasting! If you’re interested in the VIA Maestro program, please contact me for details.
