WSET Level 3 Certified With Distinction, WSET Diploma Candidate

The wine world can be intimidating. I’m here to fix that and make it easier for you!

Wine has never been so exciting! It’s time to jump in and learn! Check out the site and follow my journey!

I am a mom of 3, writer (be sure to check out my motherhood and lifestyle blog at Sassy Plum) and lover of wine! I am honored to have achieved the WSET Level 1, 2, and 3 credentials from Napa Valley Wine Academy, where I’ve demonstrated advanced knowledge for grape-growing, wine-making, wine theory, and proper wine-assessment through blind tastings. I am currently a candidate for WSET diplomacy and working my way through those complex divisions!

Sipping delicious wine has always been like enjoying a glass of sunshine! I particularly enjoy pairing wine with meals, mood, and music. My studies have also afforded me a deep appreciation for wine history, science, and the art of it all. I am here to share, educate and explore with fellow wine-enthusiasts!

If you want to learn more about wine as well, don’t be a stranger! This site will be full of education, trends, travel and my opinions about wine-related topics.

Follow along and let’s learn together!
