|Me amongst the Muscat vines on Samos|
Once I got more intensely involved in the day-to-day workings of the company, I decided it was time to learn about wine so I could converse with buyers more intelligently. Furthermore, no one was taking me seriously in the beginning because they thought I was too young & inexperienced. Over the next few years I took classes through the NY office of WSET and in 2005 I earned my Diploma in Wine & Spirits.
I currently oversee all aspects of our business but tend to focus mostly on building distributor relationships, education and brand development. We all wear many hats in the company and I am fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to be exposed to all aspects of the company's dealings and can jump in anywhere I'm needed at a moment's notice.
