SISTER CIRCLE LIVE

If there's any advice at all to give, it's to grind towards your vision. Birthday month was filled with many blessings - none of which would have been possible without the daily grind and a little elbow grease! I returned to the Sister Circle Live set for a special wine & food pairing segment with Blu Lagoon Atlanta. Icing on top? Being set buddies with the amazing Brian McKnight!

BÂTTONNAGE

bat2019

Bâtonnage Forum takes its name from the French term meaning "lees stirring". True to the origin of its name, the 2019 forum provided a platform for those “who have traditionally been overlooked or spoken over” in the beverage industry to stir things up.

Y’all, the conversation was raw, heated and operative. The one day event’s agenda included three panel discussions, lunch and a post event wrap up happy hour. What I valued most about this conference was the panelists' commitment to taking off the masque. The panel topics (listed below) were fresh and allowed for candid dialogue.

Panel 1 - Departing Dysfunction
Panel 2 - Pathways to Inclusion: But How, Really? Panel 3 - Do You Sell Sex?

Grateful for the opportunity to attend this sold out forum in Napa, CA and be a part of the conversation about us ladies in various facets of the wine industry!

WORDS & WINE: CITY WINERY

Thank you all who attended the sold out second installment of Words & Wine at City Winery Chicago! It was a fabulous poetry, music and wine pairing event, featuring sounds by The Lab3l.

As both a sommelier and poet, I see wine elevated by words and vice versa. On the surface, wine and poetry can seem unrelated. Searching for Cloves & Lilies: The Wine Edition is one way of showing the congruence of the two. Seemingly different mediums can be more intertwined than you think. Challenge yourself to see likeness, positivity and common ground.
