About Me

I am a wine lover.

You’ve heard of the term ‘balance’ in both the vineyard and in wine, but here is a concept that benefits from further introspection. Balance transposes itself onto our own lives – personal, professional, and spiritual.

Winegrowers and producers fundamentally understand the dichotomy of transience and timelessness in their craft.

Nature’s cycles mirror our own chapters over a lifetime. 

I, like generations before, find myself drawn to the vineyards, wrapped in the reassuring magic of fermentation, and comforted by the rhythms of winegrowing and winemaking through seasonal cycles that have endured for over eight millennia.

And so Terravenos was born as a space to share a wine-infused life.

Join me on this journey of equal parts personal learning, sensory exploration, and treatise to humankind’s greatest travel companion – the humble grape.

What’s my wine education background?

I’ve completed the WSET Diploma (read about my decision to take on the WSET Diploma here). In addition, I hold the Spanish Wine Scholar certification, along with the Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) credential through the Society of Wine Educators. I’ve completed the Wine Studies and Wine Marketing Program through Santa Rosa Junior College. I’m also a member of the lively Monterey Chapter of the American Wine Society – if you’re local, join us!

Today I’m a freelance wine content writer and wine educator. 
You can read my work by visiting my contributor page for Gold Medal Wine Club or on my blog, Trellis. I invite you to connect with me on LinkedIn.

What else? I’m a garagista crafting very drinkable wines for close friends and family going on nine harvests with fruit sourced from the Central Coast’s bounty – and, above all –

I am a lover of the grape.
