Hi! I'm Lourdes of the Vine (see what I did there?)I started my very own wine journey back in 2010. Jumping straight into wine retail helped me discover that my wine passion is really rooted in the connection with the PEOPLE. From the winemaker to the wine lover, my goal is to connect and help consumers find their wine confidence through tasting and education.Trust me, I'm not here to be another "wine influencer." I created Lourdes of the Vine (LOTV) to curate wines that are esoteric, approachable, and delicious!\n\nAt an LOTV event, you won't see any mass-produced, mass-marketed wines. I follow the shop local & shop small philosophy by presenting and supporting independent vignerons and retailers who recognize and encourage sustainability through organic wine, biodynamic farming, and natural wine.Looking forward to sharing a glass with you virtually.
