Ellen McAleavy, Wine Educator
Ellen's goal is to increase guests' enjoyment of wine by demystifying wine tasting, sharing stories about vineyards and winemaking, and discussing food pairings. Her wine education began while working at Bonny Doon Vineyard, and continued to expand as a sales representative for distributors of both domestic and international wine portfolios. While her kids were young, Ellen and her husband, Arthur, took advantage of winemaking opportunities for him in Australia and Spain. After many years abroad, Ellen loves being closer to family and living in beautiful Sonoma County again.
