Welcome to Forwinesake – a website for aspiring wine enthusiasts and novices alike to learn about wine, enjoy and celebrate.

My name is Elena Grigio and I’m the person behind Forwinesake. I’m not a professional sommelier, but I hold an MBA degree in food & wine from the University of Bologna, and I spent two years living in different parts of Italy, working for local wineries and learning wine first-hand. I’m a wine enthusiast and the one in my friendship group and family that always seems to know what wine to pick for dinner or special occasion. I’m still learning about wine, but I like to share what I’ve learned so far.

Forwinesake is a space where I’ll share my thoughts on events and wine culture, tips on learning about wine, my travel experiences, favorite dining spots, conversations with notable people in the wine industry and more.
