About Me


I used to have a bunch of stuff on here about where I’ve lived and what I’ve done blah, blah, blah.

All you need to know is I am a wife and mother and I happen to make wine. I have a SUPER supportive family without which I would not have been able to do a quarter of what I have been able to do in the 30 short years I’ve been on this earth.

Currently I am the red winemaker at Robert Mondavi Winery in Oakville, CA . It’s my dream job and yes I still pinch myself everyday that I work there and am blessed to work with some if the best fruit in California.

I am a WSET Diploma Graduate and as a total glutton for punishment I am also working toward being a Master of Wine.

This blog is predominantly about Wine however, I feel the need to incorporate other topics as well. I started this blog in 2009 to introduce people to and educate them about wine. However, life is not just wine so this blog now covers my experiences with wine, life, and beyond.

Legal Stuff…

I would assume that to the majority of you this would be obvious however any and all content on www.novacadamatre.com is my personal view and does not reflect the views of my current or past employers. Hence why it’s called www.NOVACADAMATRE.com. The same goes for any content I post on my Twitter account @NovaCadamatre or my Facebook page or any other social media I may be involved in where I personally am posting information… yada, yada, yada. I am not an official spokesperson for my current company, Constellation Brands, and while I may occasionally make reference to their brand portfolio please be aware that this is not a company site nor should it be construed as such.
