Kristin

Founder, Content Director, Wine Enthusiast

I was born to be a wine lover. It runs in the family! My father grew up on a vineyard in Argentina where he developed an interest in wine at an early age. Although his family moved to California when he was a teenager, he told his memories and passion with him. He’s been a wine hobbyist for his entire adult life. You can read more about me.

Erica

Certified Sommelier

Until I started working in the industry, the only thing I knew about wine was that there was white and red wine. And I didn’t think I liked either of them. At a fancy themed party in college, I tried my first sip (gulp) of wine. I had a hard time choking it down. Unfortunately, it did not taste like juice as I expected. You can read more about me.
