More about today’s guest
Marilee Bramhall vividly remembers her first sip of wine; a left bank Bordeaux paired with a delightful dinner prepared by her Dad. That single sip has led to a lifetime of curiosity and wonder. After nearly a decade in the WA and CA wine industry Marilee began her study of old-world wines. Over 10 years have passed since beginning this chapter of her career in wine which has included countless hours of study, travel and becoming a wine entrepreneur/detective; importing naturally made wines from French and Italian women winemakers at the top of their game. These wines are available for purchase at iolawines.com. Marilee has completed with the Highest Honors the certifications for French Wine Scholar and Italian Wine Scholar and WSET Level 3 with Merit. In addition, Marilee has completed programs with the Bureau Interprofessionel des Vins De Bourgogne in Beaune, France: a Masterclass for Wine Educators and a Five-Day Bourgogne Wines Intensive Masterclass in Bourgogne, France. Marilee lives in Seattle with her husband.
