|Laura Ness, aka “@HerVineNess,” is a long-time resident of the Santa Cruz Mountains in Northern California, where rugged terrain helps create uniquely character-driven wine. She’s been exploring the ever-growing wine regions of California for nearly 30 years, and writes for many industry and consumer publications. She’ll tell you that great wine is like poetry: it sings to you in a voice you can’t ignore, and with a melody you can never forget. Each wine region has a secret message you can only decode by being there. Arrive, observe, sip, savor. Pass it on. Laura also provides wine marketing and PR.
