I write about wine (travel + food + luxury too) as a freelancer in addition to L’occasion. Recently my work has appeared in partnership with Forbes, USA Today, Vivino, Palate Press, Luxe Provence, Courrier International, American Winery Guide, Wine Tourist Magazine, Provence WineZine, Perfectly Provence, California Winery Advisor and DuVine Adventures and Cycling. I am a certified Provence Wine Master via the Wine Scholar Guild.
I am a fiction writer with short stories published in multiple print anthologies and literary journals and my work has been featured on NPR and Longform. My novel tells the story of Provençal winemakers during the Second World War through the later part of their lives in 1970’s Napa.
I am interested in profiling wineries, estates & winemakers that offer an inviting experience for customers. Please contact me (in English or French) through the form below if interested in collaborating.
I also provide social media consulting, communication crafting and community management for a suite of clients. If your company is in need of an enthusiastic, experienced social media expert, please reach out to discuss partnership opportunities.
My husband has a knack for food and photography and is my partner on the blog for these topics and will create a meal sure to highlight any bottle of wine!
I may accept wine samples for review as well as wine related books, wine fiction novels and invitations to events.
Please note that some of the winemakers I’ve covered here have provided samples, either by a generous offer or by my request. None of my posts are sponsored or paid, and the complimentary wine, product, tour or invitation has been utilized to tell a more complete story based on my experience.
