Erika’s love of wine was cultivated in the vineyards and wineries of the Finger Lakes, Northern California; Massachusetts; and her father’s homeland of Wurttemberg, Germany. She has completed several wine studies classes at Cornell University, Boston University, and the Boston Wine School. Never before did she think that studying chemistry, agriculture, geography, and history could be this much fun!
In 2011, Erika earned the title of Certified Specialist of Wine from the Society of Wine Educators. She is currently pursuing the Diploma certification from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Erika most enjoys introducing people to new wines and up-and-coming regions. She strives to make wine accessible and enjoyable for everyone.
