For many years Andrea worked as a creative professional, either designing, making or teaching. After living in San Francisco for several years and spending countless weekends exploring the wineries of Sonoma and Napa counties she returned east to continue in her creative fields always knowing that someday she would delve into the wine world professionally. Andrea finally took the leap to combine her passions for teaching, entertaining, and wine and earned a WSET Level 2 Award in Wine and Spirits. She followed that with a WSET Level 3 Advanced Award in Wine Certification and began hosting tastings to bring her love of wine to others. She has always had a love for entertaining, throwing a fun party and of course finding great wines.
Connecting with people, having fun while learning and building confidence in wine knowledge is where I thrive. I love trying new wines, of which there is an endless supply, and helping people to discover wines they never heard of or never thought they would like. What’s better than enjoying great wines while socializing and expanding our repertoire? There’s a great big wine world out there that is ever changing and so there is always something new to learn and share with others.
