As an academic and college teacher, I love attending conferences and seminars–I love to learn and to share what I’m learning online.

In 2008, I attended the first North American Wine Blogger’s Conference in Santa Rosa, CA; this conference focused on Sonoma County wines as well as a tasting of New Zealand releases.

In 2009, I attended the second North American Wine Blogger’s Conference in Santa Rosa, CA; this year the conference focused on Napa Valley wines as well as a tasting of wines from Portugal and Spain.

In 2009, I also attended the European Wine Bloggers Conference in Lisbon, Portugal.WBC-Attendee-Badge-2013
