Wine: a complex and classy blend, cheap enough for a college budget.

I’m Rachel McGugin, a small-town girl from Ashland, Ohio who drinks coffee by day and wine by night. I began my love for wine at 19 as a server at a local Italian restaurant. I loved my training on the different flavor profiles and pairings. While at the time I was not old enough to drink wine, I began my wine tasting hobby at the prompt age of 21. It wasn’t long before I fell in love with the sensory and social experiences that flow with every sip. 

Join me as I dive into the complexity of wine and its history, while promoting new brands and local wineries.  There’s a time and place for everything, but when it comes to wine…Wine Not Now?
