It was when she lived in Frankfurt, Germany that Carol started to embrace her passion for wine and wine knowledge. She was 16, boating down the Rheine River with classmates, enjoying a glass or two of fine German Riesling.

She had a 20 year career in IT when, in 2010,

she began studying at the International Wine

Guild in Denver. 20 classes later she emerged 

as one of 3 instructors holding a ‘Master Wine

Educator’ certification.

Pairing her education with extensive travel to

wine producing areas of Europe fuels the

excitement of discovery and encouraged her 

to never stop learning about and ‘sampling’

great wines of the world.
