ABOUT YOUR HOST

TONI HARRIS is a fun, vibrant and approachable wine educator who takes learning about wine to whole new levels.

 

If you don’t already know and love Toni, here is a bit more about her, in her words:

 

“I love wine. I love to drink it, teach it, tell its story, discover its depths and reveal its secrets. I also love to help people figure out why they love to drink wine and how they can become their own “wine whisperer.” 

 

I was fortunate enough to be introduced to wine in France at the age of 19, but I didn’t realize how deep my obsession with wine had become until I found myself moving from Texas to Oregon – all because I tasted the Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley. Ever since then, and for the past nine years, I have been enhancing my skills as a wine educator.

 

Now, I am traveling to Portugal on another wine adventure where I can share my passion and knowledge with you! When you travel with me, you can expect to make new friends, taste new wines (hint: not just dessert wine!), laugh until your sides hurt, and feel a sense of understanding creep in around this mysterious thing called wine.

 

I believe that – just as each person has a story – every glass of wine has a story, too. I look forward to sharing many stories with you!”

 

Toni is currently living her dream life in Oregon where she gets to talk about wine all day, and then go home to her amazing husband, wicked smart toddler, and sweetest rescue dog ever.
