About The Wining Hour


If you enjoy reading blogs (occasionally in Italian) about all things wine, Italy and/or global travel, you are in the right place!  

First, I must say that I am by no means an authority on wine-I just LOVE it!  I also love to travel.  I have had the pleasure of traveling to over 30 countries so far, and it never gets old.  My passion for travel and my jetsetting ways have allowed me to experience some great things along the way, namely some wonderful wines and wine regions. I love all things Italian and have some roots in the peninsula (Sicily), so I must confess my bias in that regard. Nevertheless, I have favorite wines from all over the world. My professional background is in the field of education and I have been teaching for over 15 years.  I absolutely love it, as it affords me the time to enjoy the other things I love-wine and travel.

The Wining Hour hosts the weekly virtual wine chat,  #wininghourchat, on Twitter (@wininghourchat) every Tuesday at 6 p.m. PST. I am also do wine tastings and am a wine brand ambassador for the Boisset Collection.

When I am not wining, traveling, nurturing my love for all things Italian or teaching, I am doing another favorite thing--maintaining a wine boutique (The Wining Hour).  The Wining Hour boutique is dedicated to wine lovers across the globe and markets all wine-related items.  For wine, wine barrel furniture, wine decor, storage, preservation and cooling options, stemware, barware, wine accessories, gifts and more, please visit: www.thewininghour.com.
