I grew up in the Fingerlakes AVA of New York and graduated from Cornell University in May of 2018 with a degree in Enology and Viticulture! While at Cornell I was involved with all sorts of projects from raising Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs to fermenting maple syrup to competing at Challenge Agro Vino Tech (CAV’iT) a blind tasting competition in Reims, France!
I’ve worked harvests all over the US and one international (though eventually I’ll probably do more; Tasmania, Austria and Oregon are high on my list!)
