“After my trip to Napa Valley, I was committed to expanding my knowledge and appreciation of wine. Wine is truly my personal passport! It allows me to explore authentic expressions of a specific region almost anywhere in the world (within 30-50 degrees Latitude in the Northern & Southern hemispheres). Now I’m ready to share my knowledge and passion with others. Join me as we unlock the mystique of wine history and culture! Cheers!” –Larissa D., Your Wine Educator
