Whatʼs up, guys! Iʼm Aerin, a wine drinking, hip hop/ punk rock lovinʼ artist and part-time comedian (just kidding). However, you can expect me to make a lot of cheesy jokes! In fact, one of the only things I take seriously, is my studies in wine. If the conversation isnʼt about wine, Iʼm bored-eaux!!
Some of you may recognize my name as most of the emails you receive I curated. Here at Drink Dispatch, I am one of two people (Alex is the other one) who run the eCommerce side of everything. Aside from making emails look pretty, building and adding products to our website (yes, that involves tasting a buuuunch of wine)... both Alex and I make a valiant effort to stay in communication with our customers and solve any issues that may arise to the best of our ability. Thank you for your continued support!
Anywho!! Wine has been a part of my life long before I could legally drink it (shhh). My mother takes credit for my love of the juice claiming to have breastfed me while drinking it. Donʼt worry guys, I turned out just fine.
My journey in wine studies started when someone told me they could not see me being a sommelier. I thought... “Well, shit! Now I have to do it”. Thatʼs when I started studying viticulture and viniculture and getting “bit by the wine bug”. I became quite obsessed right away! I have turned what was a "part time" side gig bartending into a dream job. Wine... creativity... helping people. I couldn't ask for a better way to spend my day!
Join me on my journey learning about wine regions, soil types, climates, varietals, blind tasting and much more! Let me share with you the cool wines I just tried, tell you about that really awesome up-and-coming winemaker I met & this cool story about the history of _____.
Letʼs learn together, drink all the winez and not take anything too serious! Cheers!
