Oenovitale Wines Ltd. is brings a special focus on the wines of France, Germany, and Italy, as well as wines from California, Oregon, and Washington, engaging curious wine lovers with small production wines and the people who make them. We seek out passionate, innovative winemakers producing unique wines of outstanding quality offering great value and reflecting sustainable values.


My own passion for wine emerged while living in France for the first time as a student at the University of Strasbourg. Later, while working with Robert Mondavi in California I broadened my wine knowledge and discovered the huge variety of exciting small production wines from the US West Coast.

Wine is a never-ending journey in pursuit of pleasure. I regularly visit key wine regions and producers. I hold a WSET qualification in wine, am a member of the Society of Wine Educators, and a past board director of the Independent Wine Education Guild. I am also a Certified Olive Oil Consultant.
