Living Wine delivers travel, tasting and winemaking intel to casual drinkers and enthusiasts alike.  It also provides marketing, business development and research services for wine and tourism businesses.

Above all, Living Wine’s mission is to contribute to the preservation of indigenous grapes, biodiversity, low intervention farming methods and ethically sound practices in wine regions across the world.  You too can take part in this mission by supporting small independent producers and organizations dedicated to honoring the past and securing a healthy future for many families and regions.

My story begins like many before me, but my goal in establishing Living Wine is different.  My intention is not to post perfectly curated stories and images to simply inspire people to travel and drink wine in well established regions.  Instead, Living Wine exists to actually enable everyday people to take part in informative, immersive wine experiences.  Wine travel and education don’t have to cost a ton of money like those advertised to the elite or only accessible to industry pros.  By exchanging skills, knowledge and genuine passion, people can help each other to grow and achieve things far superior to an increase in net worth.

In 2017, I quit my job in NYC and embarked on a wine-fueled journey across Italy.  My passion for wine began over a decade earlier, while living in Los Angeles and visiting my sister in San Francisco.  Prior to then, I had never visited a vineyard and I’d probably only set foot on a handful of actual farms of any kind.  Fruit and vegetables came from grocery stores and wine hailed from liquor stores, and I didn’t give it much more thought than that. I had a lot to learn.
