"This endeavor has been a decade in the making. I fell in love with wine while working for a winery in Idaho. Working in the tasting room, helping with dinners, weddings, events, and more. I watched all the many ways wine brought people together– families, friends, staff and strangers.
Although I have spent many years as a therapist my passion for wine and the wine industry never wavered. Whether it was making wine suggestions to friends and family or traveling locally and internationally for food and wine experiences. During the pandemic, I made the decision to take my wine journey more serious. I immersed myself through movies, podcasts, books, panels, mentorship, and wine certifications. I have hosted events all over the city of Birmingham that I proudly call home. From this love of sharing wine knowledge and hosting events, Bon Vivant Noir LLC was born."
