About the event
Michele D'Aprix, the first American female currently making wine in Bordeaux. Her love affair with wine began in 1997 when she walked into the cellar at Dry Creek Vineyard for a job interview. She recalls, “The enologist ultimately hired me because, at the time, I was a bartender in Boston. They figured a bartender's ability to multitask outweighed my lack of experience." Michele ultimately earned her Viticulture and Enology degree from UC Davis, and today she runs her own wine importing business. Her mission is to redefine Bordeaux for a new generation of wine lovers — to swipe it of its stuffy notoriety and intimidation.
