Welcome to The Younger Wine! My name is Gillian and I’m an aspiring winemaker and recent graduate of the Viticulture & Enology program at UC Davis. I currently work in winemaking production for a winery in Napa Valley.
The world of wine, especially in Napa Valley, can be an intimidating one – there is so much tradition and so much to be learned that it can be overwhelming at times. Just in this little valley there are over 400 wineries and hundreds of amazing restaurants with extensive wine lists… where do you start? So I wanted to create The Younger Wine as a place to collect all of the gems I’ve learned and hopefully share it with young people who are just as obsessed with wine as I am and want to learn more about the inner-workings of the industry.
I love writing and I love wine, and this blog is a place to combine the two. In addition to talking about my personal experiences working on the production side of the industry, I want to hopefully provide some more insight into buying wine in your day-to-day life with my wine reviews. Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoy!
