The Wine Associate:
I have spent 30 wonderful years in the service industry with over half of that time focused on wine. I found my true passion at about 22 years old and have been following the wine dream ever since. I was entranced by the storied history of each grape, region and winery. I spent a good deal of time working with a distributor as a brand manager and was responsible for pricing and marketing for around 200 labels in the state of Michigan. I developed award winning wine lists for a resort in Northern Michigan and during that time planted 5 acres of grapes to my own vineyard. The final step will be bottling wine produced from these vineyards under my own label for release in 2019.
