Grape Revival shares ways to learn about, taste and make wine.  It also provides marketing, business development and research services for sustainable wine and tourism businesses.

Above all, Grape Revival’s mission is to contribute to the preservation of indigenous grapes, biodiversity, low intervention farming methods and ethically sound businesses and people across the world.  You too can take part in this mission by supporting small independent grape growers, producers and organizations dedicated to honoring the past and securing a healthy future for many families and regions.

My story begins like many before me, but my goal in establishing Grape Revival is different.  Grape Revival exists to actively enable people to learn and take part in immersive wine experiences while contributing to ethical businesses.  Wine travel and education don’t have to cost a ton of money, like many assume.  By exchanging skills, knowledge and genuine passion, people can help each other grow and prosper.

In 2017, I quit my job in NYC and embarked on a wine-fueled journey across Italy.  My passion for wine began over a decade earlier, while living in Los Angeles and visiting my sister in San Francisco.  Prior to then, I had never visited a vineyard and I’d probably only set foot on a handful of actual farms of any kind.  Fruit and vegetables came from grocery stores and wine hailed from liquor stores, and I didn’t give it much more thought than that. I had a lot to learn.
