Expertise: Wine

What inspires you to teach/coach people? Wine is complicated and I don’t want people to be intimidated by it.

Who was one of your most influential mentors and what’s one of the most important lessons you learned from them? Michael Migliore from Whitecliff Vineyards. I learned all about the process of making wine from him. Working in the field to blending the finished product. You always have to be thinking about what comes next.

What’s one piece of advice you would give to someone just starting out in your field? Network with others in your field. People love to share experience and advice.

If you could pick one person to spend an hour learning from (they could be anywhere in the world) who would you pick? Gina Gallo

What are the benefits of meeting clients over live video? It’s personal when you meet clients over video. It brings people together as if you are sitting having coffee, (okay a glass of wine) together, even though you might be on different ends of the world.
