Press Release

New Online Wine Magazine Features Reviews, “Insider Interviews,” and Exclusive Behind-The-Scenes Reports in    Wine Stores, Trade Events, and Wineries Around the World

New York, NY, May 26, 2010 – Consumers interested in wine can visit many web sites, yet few free sites contain valuable information from a verified, highly credentialed source. Marisa D’Vari has over a half-dozen of the world’s most respected sommelier credentials, including the Diploma of Wine and Spirits from the UK’s Wine & Spirits Educational Trust and Certified Wine Educator designation from the Society of Wine Educators (less than 130 in the world). As an international wine and spirits writer, D’Vari makes it her mission to educate readers of her online wine magazine,

“As I wine educator, I feel it crucial that beginners interested in wine learn how to taste correctly. My reviews follow the ‘systematic’ approach taught through the UK’s Wine & Spirits Educational Trust. Through my tasting notes and winemaker interviewers, can learn how to properly evaluate wine without going to school.”

Beyond reviews of popular-priced wines, offers Behind-The-Scenes interviews with the world’s finest wine producers, wine store buyers, and celebrity chefs in both video and written format.
Readers are encouraged to submit questions which are answered on the site’s Frequently Asked Questions message board.

D’Vari has been invited to taste at the International Wine and Spirits competition, the most respected competition in the world, and is the first American member of the Association of Wine Writers in the UK. She produced and hosted a television show about food and wine called A Taste of Luxury from 1995 – 2005, and has written about wine, food, and luxury for London’s Financial Times, Robb Report, Quarterly Review of Wine, the San Francisco Chronicle, and many others. An international journalist, she was one of two American women invited to attend 2010 En Primeur in Bordeaux
