Wine is

Hi, I'm Sasha.

Food, wine, travel – I love it all.  Mostly I am passionate about connection and communication.  My first love was live performance.  I was inspired by the energy that exists between performer and audience.  It is a space that can open windows of understanding and create change.  It is a direct connection between human beings.

Discovering the world of wine sparked a whole new love. I learned that wine is so much more than a beverage, it is an amalgamation of history, culture, nature and community. In the glass I found something else that created a direct connection between human beings through the experience of enjoyment and understanding.

Vinolust is my way to broadcast a love of learning, food, wine and travel and create an avenue of communication and connection.  I am a big geek who loves school.  As far as wine education goes, I have happily earned my WSET Level 4 Diploma, become a Certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers, and look forward every day to finding new ways to share as much as I can with anyone who is interested.  The great news is, there is always so much to learn but the knowledge is out there for everyone!  Wine has the uncanny ability to bring people together from all walks of life, and ultimately I really believe that humane discussions over a glass of wine can actually help save the world.  Or something like that.
