About



Greetings,


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

My passion for travel and my jettsetting ways have allowed me to experience some great things along the way, namely, awesome wines and wine regions.  I have a vested interest in all things Italian, as I have some roots in the boot (Sicilia). Nevertheless, I enjoy wines from all over the world. My professional background is in the field of education. I absolutely love teaching, as it affords me the opportunity to enjoy the other things I love-wine and travel.


I host the weekly virtual wine chat,  #wininghourchat, on Twitter (@wininghourchat) every Tuesday at 6 p.m. PST. I also host wine tasting events and serve as a brand ambassador for boutique, small and larger wineries.

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 Boutique).  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.  

Thanks for reading my blog posts and visiting my site!
