Discover my selection of unique boutique wines with sustainability at their core.
Band of Vintners was born from a monthly tasting group of seven Napa Valley tastemakers: four winemakers, a sommelier, wine executive and wine importer, each highly regarded among their peers for their contributions to the wine profession. Together, they pooled their resources, talents and relationships to access some of Napa Valley’s best, sustainably-farmed fruit and all the winemaking necessities to get their wine into bottle. The result is Consortium, a delicious symphony of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at a price that is music to everyone’s ear.
I created Wine Monkey to bring together a collection of lesser-known craft wines that celebrate sustainability, whether environmental, human, economic and/or social and to support the producers who see and care about the bigger picture.
You name it, I've done it: from marketing and brand management to retail and trade sales, wine tourism, wine education, ecommerce and, most recently sommelier, with several vintages under my belt both in the cellar and in the vineyard.
Having worked my way through the vineyards of southern Oregon, the Loire, the Languedoc, the Rhône and now the UK, I have developed a passion for "unique boutique" wines. Wine Monkey is all about bringing together and showcasing the incredible wines I've collected along the way. Get in touch to let me know what you think of my selection and to share your favorites with me. I'd love to hear from you!
