  • Carrie is an award-winning journalist whose work received a fellowship from the Symposium for Professional Wine Writers as well as a shortlist by the Born Digital Wine Awards.
  • Her wine expertise gained her a judging seat in some of the most prestigious wine competitions around the globe.
  • In addition to wine, writing about travel, food, foraging, and wellness are of great priority to Carrie. Her work can be found in/on AFAR, Lonely Planet, Wine Enthusiast, Somm TV, and SevenFifty Daily, among others.


Carrie loves getting excited by something she has read and hopes to bring that thrill of discovery to Tasting Corner. Working in wine, food, and travel journalism for over a decade has afforded her many stories to tell and knowledge to drop. She resides in the Hudson Valley with her husband, son, Border Collie Shep, Maine Coon mix Remington, and Brooklyn street cat Chimo. When she is not writing about her favorite things, she might be finding treasures in thrift stores or on forest floors.


Carrie studied creative writing at TCNJ, found her niche, and went all in. She began studying wine from every angle (blind tasting, journalism, business, viticulture, and viniculture) — first at the Sommelier Society of America, then the International Wine School where she was certified at an advanced level and she went on to begin studies for the DipWSET.
