About

Hi there. I’m a wine industry professional with WSET III credentials and have studied at UC Davis, Napa Valley Wine Academy, with the Society of Wine Educators, and few other places.

While my day job is writing about viticulture and oenology, my passion lies in the details. Here, in my little corner of the web, I’ve found a little spot to explore why the landscape of wine growing, wine making, and the wine business in general looks as it does. And to observe how its changing, think about why, and ponder where it might be headed.

Let me know if you have any burning questions. I’m happy to share what I know and research what I don’t. Let me know if you’d like to borrow my big beautiful brain for a project. Education, exploration, and writing are my sandbox and I’m happy to build you a castle. Or just loan you a shovel and some buckets.

Lastly, thanks for being here. Wine has always existed as a relationship between the land and humanity. It’s developed as a conversation we have with the earth, the vines, and chemical processes along the way. I look forward to your thoughts and insights.

Now go fog off,

Maisie
