About Me

Hi there!

Thanks for visiting Life of Vines!

Who am I?

I love wine. I assume you do too if you’re visiting this page (unless you’re my mom who’s here just to see me – Hi Mom!)

In my humble opinion, wine should not be intimidating or overwhelming although it so often is. Join me on my journey to learn more as I study for the Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) Exam and explore new wine territory.

I look forward to chatting with you here at The Life of Vines or on Twitter during #winechat on Wednesday nights at 9 pm EST/6 pm PST. Be sure to bring a glass or two to enjoy during the chat. Join in!

I hope you enjoy the articles and look forward to your thoughts!

Samples are accepted but are not guarantees of positive reviews. If you send me a sample, I will review it honestly and fairly.

I love to bring together groups of people to try new wines, so be patient if you don’t see a review right away, it means I’m planning a gathering.

Any reviews of samples will be clearly labeled as such. Send me an email at marie@lifeofvines.com before sending samples. Thanks!
