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 was once a Manhattan 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 worked at Gilt Taste in their wine group start-up. I spent nearly a year building the wine team and wine collection from ground-up and wrote the content for their product pages and food pairings. I have spent the last 3 years studying for my WSET Diploma and am near to graduating.
After completing my project with Gilt, I decided to pursue wine writing permanently. I have penned a weekly online wine column for the Village Voice called Unscrewed for nearly a year, and continue to freelance, and write a blog called ChasingTheVine.
