About today’s Host:
Annie Replogle is a food and wine lover whose passion for all things Italian brought her to Rome, Italy. She holds a WSET Level III, Level I Sommelier, and Certified Italian Wine Ambassador certification. Her love of wine began over a decade ago after taking a wine course during her study abroad in Florence, Italy – an opportunity that allowed her to travel to vineyards across Tuscany learning about wine and the art of deductive tasting. Eight years ago, she decided to pursue this passion even further – a move that led her to work in Tuscany, Italy; Australia’s Barossa Valley; Marlborough, New Zealand; La Rioja, Spain; as well as Sonoma, Los Angeles, New York City and now, Rome. She’s currently working for an Italian luxury travel agency, pursuing a Master’s Degree in Food and Beverage Management, and working on her side business, Vin Concierge — a platform designed to provide members with the best Italian wine recommendations, food pairing suggestions and recipes, as well as carefully-curated food and wine itineraries throughout Italy.
