How it Began

Almost three years ago, I founded this fabulous group, later named: The Girls n Grapes.

After spending a number of years in and out of tasting groups from the west coast to the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St Paul, I finally decided to create a tasting group of my own. With that, I singularly put together a collection of smart and savvy women, passionate about wine and food and interested in exploring the wide world of grape varietals, wine styles, and culinary pairings.

All from a variety of backgrounds from sommelier, wine distribution, wine supplier chain to food enthusiasts – the group quickly became, after regularly meeting once a month, the closest of friends. Month to month, the subjects have changed from grape varietal specific to culinary themes and regions, all equipped with blind tastings, new recipes and fun new adventures.

Today, it is my closest group of girlfriends.
