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. As you will notice, 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. While I am not a certified wine specialist, I was very excited to earn my doctoral degree (PhD) over 4 yrs ago in educational leadership and management.  I am a grad school professor for a private 4 yr. university. I have been teaching for over 15 years and I absolutely love it! It also affords me the time to enjoy the other things I love-wine and travel.

The Wining Hour hosts #wininghourchat on Twitter (@wininghourchat) on Tuesday's at 9 p.m. EST.(For more, see links at the top of this page)

When I am not wining, traveling, nurturing my love for all things Italian or teaching, I am doing the next best thing -serving as a wine ambassador for the Boisset Collection. I also maintain a wine boutique (The Wining Hour).  TWH boutique is dedicated to winelovers across the globe and markets all wine-related items.  For wine barrel furniture, wine decor, storage, preservation and cooling options, stemware, barware, wine accessories, gifts and more, please visit: www.thewininghour.com
