My name is Lauren Mowery. I have lived in New York City since college and have been fond of both travel and wine for all of my adult existence. I treat my free time like a part-time job: plotting trip routes, searching for overlooked or under appreciated wines and regions, while studying for my WSET Diploma. My first foray into a wine career was with Gilt Taste. I worked the better part of last year building their wine team and wine collection from ground-up and wrote the content for their product pages and food pairings.
I also have a secret to admit – I was once a lawyer (and technically still am). I unintentionally followed in the footsteps of Robert Parker and many other disillusioned advocates, by swapping a lucrative but dreary career in law for a dream of one in wine. In pursuit of that dream, I pen a weekly online wine column for the Village Voice called Unscrewed, continue to freelance, and write this blog.
