Wine isn’t boring. But the way most people write about it is. With Bottle Service, I’m looking to bust through the boundaries, finding new ways to engage with wine — and engage wine drinkers. Love David Bowie? Here’s why his music pairs best with volcanic whites. Looking to explore Spanish reds? These are the rock stars winemakers you need to know.
I’m also looking to make the wine universe smaller, to eliminate the overwhelm. Hundreds of thousands of wine are available online. I wade through the muck, seeking the best value wines from sustainable producers. My goal is that these wine (and occasional spirits) will wow you.
Why: I love connecting people to wines they’ll enjoy. I’m the content lead at the wine discovery platform Pix, and its publication The Drop. This newsletter is my own personal project — a place to play around with ideas. I love feedback; please tell me what you like and don’t like.
I’m a longtime writer and editor in the wine and spirits space — and beyond. Previously, I led content strategy and teams at VinePair, SevenFifty Daily, Architectural Digest, and Saveur. I judge wine competitions, and have a WSET 3 certification. I also wrote a Storied Sips (Random House), about the real-life stories behind the world’s most famous cocktails.
