Team & Founders



Alexandria grew up in Northern California, in a small town which sparked her desire to learn more about the world outside of her hometown. She moved out of California to attend school at Arizona State University, excited to live in a new state. 

After obtaining a degree in Business Communications, Alexandria began her career in the world of wine. She worked for Gallo Wine Company in a Sales and Marketing Role, where she not only continued to develop her passion, for business but also her passion for wine. She was given great opportunities to complete a Certified Specialist of Wine degree while working in corporate wine sales. However, Alexandria’s passion for travel led her to explore more of the world and leave the 9-5 back home in California. Through her travels, she has been passionate about exploring cultures and found that often the best way to do this is to dive into the flavors of a destination. Alexandria is currently pursuing a Sommelier Certification in order to further her education in the world of wine.
