Just the Bottle

One woman's adventure in beer, food, wine and spirits


Christina's passion in wine began years ago, but she really didn't know what she was doing.  Her real education began after losing her job in 2010.  This turned into an amazing opportunity that led to her traveling around the globe writing, tweeting and tasting wine.  Besides continuing her work in nonprofits, she also serves as the director for #winechat; reviews and writes about food, wine and spirits; and pours at tastings and events educating guests while sharing her love for wine.  Her writing has been featured in DC Wine Week and Brightest Young Things.
