I promise I’ll never tell you what to drink but I’ll always share what’s in my glass.

Let’s explore what we pour! All I ask is that you unscrew, uncork or saber a bottle and come join in the conversation.


Welcome to Exploring the Wine Glass. The place to come to experience all things wine. My blog has won several awards including the Millesima Blog Awards, a finalist for many others such as the Borne Digital Awards, as well as being named one of the top 15 influential wine bloggers in the US by Beverage Trade Network. I am the founder of the now internationally recognized Cab Franc Day. I have both an undergraduate and graduate degree in Biology, worked as a microbiologist. I graduated from UC Davis Winemaking program and completed WSET L2 with Distinction.
