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 31 short years I’ve been on this earth.
Currently I am one of three winemakers at Robert Mondavi Winery in Oakville, CA and am blessed to work with some if the best fruit in California.
I am a WSET Diploma Graduate and have recently been named one of Wine Enthusiast Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40 Tastemakers for 2014.
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.

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.
