Like everyone else, we love a good Instagram sesh. Naturally we're of the "more wine, more fun" opinion (get outta here, pictures of fancy lattes!), so we wanted to let you know where we get our daily dose of wine-spiration. Let the liking spree begin!
Whitney Adams // @ubriaca
Club W Tastemaker/sommelier/writer Whitney Adams fell in love with wine while working at restaurants to support herself as a theater actor in New York. LA Weekly included her in their "Most Fascinating Angelenos of 2015," and her Instagram account features hilarious bite-size wine tips and adventures such as champagne sabering.
Yes Way Rosé // @yeswayrose
Wine Enthusiast selected Nikki and Erica as part of their 2015 "40 Under 40" — oh, and the dynamic duo collaborated with us on Summer Water. Their Instagram proves you can drink rosé year-round, so what are you waiting for?! Hit that follow button!
André Hueston Mack // @youknowmouton
André is one of our Winemaker Partners, and he also happens to be one of the coolest people in the biz. He earned his nickname as the "black sheep" of the wine world while serving as head sommelier at French Laundry and Per Se, and then he started Mouton Noir Wines to focus on making garage-style bottles in his favorite winemaking region: Oregon.
Sarah Simms Hendrix // @lafemmeepicure
Sarah runs one of our favorite food/wine/entertaining blogs — La Femme Epicure — and she's got the chops to back it all up: a culinary arts degree from Le Cordon Bleu and a sommelier certification. Plus, Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar have both named her Instagram as one to follow!
Marissa A. Ross // @marissaaross
Marissa writes possibly the funniest wine blog on the web, but it's not all laughs: she manages to be witty, irreverent, and seriously educational all at once. Plus, she's a member of Wine Enthusiast's 2015 "40 Under 40," and she won both Editor's Choice and Reader's Choice for Best Wine Coverage at the 2015 Saveur Awards. Marissa and her Instagram are basically living proof that wine doesn't need to be so stodgy and serious — and we love her for that!
WINC // @wincwine
If you've noticed the "Produced and Bottled by WINC" on your monthly wines and wondered what it means, now's your chance to find out! Hit "follow" to get in on the new wave of winemaking.
Katie Delaney Owen // @rebelwine
We might be biased here (she is our Wine Director, after all), but Katie's Insta shows off everything we love about winemaking — and as you can tell from the above, she isn't afraid to get her hands dirty! She's been profiled in Self, and she's responsible for all the amazing wines you experience on a monthly basis. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the Club W goings-on when you follow her!
Brian Smith // @bsmithly
Again, we might be biased since Brian's our Chief Wine Director — but when his Instagram features an inside look at a dream job, why would you not follow him?!
Kenny Likitprakong // @hobowinecompany
Skateboarder-turned-winemaker Kenny Likitprakong is one of the coolest guys in the biz, and he's also one of our Winemaker Partners. The brain behind Hobo Wine Company and Ghostwriter Wines, Kenny's made a career out of a nomadic lifestyle that allows him to pick and choose only the best vineyards for his releases. Check out our Brethren of the Road collaboration, and stay tuned for the newest vintage!
June Rodil // @junerodil
June was named one of Food & Wine's Sommeliers of the Year in 2014 (she's a Master Somm), and now she serves as Beverage Director of McGuire Moorman Hospitality. She's an all-around inspiring woman in wine, and her Instagram is an engaging look into a brilliant professional living the life she loves.
