My life en rosé...
Dreamer. Lover. Writer. Hedonist. Foodie. Oenophile. Traveler. Seeker.
Hi there. My name is Joanna Snawder-Manzo and I love wine. I love all wine. Red. White. Pink. Bubbles. Stickies. All of it. So what are my credentials to tell you which wines to buy, drink and enjoy, which wineries to visit and wine events to participate in? I love wine and therefore I drink it. A lot. Oh and I recently became a CSW (Certified Specialist of Wine), as deemed by The Society Of Wine Educators. Additionally I was a Fellowship Award Winner at the 2017 Symposium for Professional Wine Writers at Meadowood Napa Valley. I have worked in the fine dining arena and assisted sommeliers as well as attend wine classes. I am a Kentucky native who has lived in: Oakland, CA, Berkley, CA, Denver, CO, Chicago, IL and now reside on The Monterey Peninsula. I work in Higher Ed by day and write for this blog and Wine Tourist Magazine, by night and weekends. I am also an affiliate for Taste Vacations. You should book one! Oh and I frequent wineries and wine tastings;) Cheers!
To offer some insights into good wines at affordable prices and to share some ideas on how to incorporate wine into travels and everyday life!
What will you find on this blog?
I am posting about my experiences with wine. The wine I drink at home, out and about and certainly any visits to wineries or wine tastings.
Who takes the photos?
My sweetie, Gabe Manzo, who has been with me since the inception. A constant support and generator of many good ideas, helpful researcher, photographer and companion extraordinaire. A true collaborator!
