Daphne is a candidate in the prestigious Master of Wine program. She became an Italian Wine Ambassador in 2017, earned a Diploma from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust in 2013, and was certified by the International Sommelier Guild in 2012. She is formerly the corporate wine buyer for Safeway Northern California where she was responsible for the curation of over 3,200 wines for nearly 300 stores across three states.
These days you can find her with her nose in a glass, seeking out unique wines, producers, and stories from undiscovered wineries around the world. Her goal, like the royal cup-bearers of the old days, is to taste widely, find the treasures worth savoring, and ensure that every glass you experience is a good one.
When she is not immersed in wine, you can find her doting on her husband and new baby, chasing chickens around the yard, or googling "how to swim the Bering Strait" and other such fantastic endurance adventures.
