Lisa’s mission is to literally provide travelers a taste of the world’s most amazing places through wines and foods, and collaborate with local winemakers, farmers and chefs within each destination who are knowledgeable and globally connected to help travelers experience the world at its absolute best.
She has a distinctive focus on wine travel on land and over water, and in 2016 formed a partnership with “Rhone Rangers” to create exclusive winemaker-led travel experiences around the World.
Lisa’s been a trusted travel advisor for over 17 years. Her preceding venture in travel not only allowed her to be part of America’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to promoting American Rhone varietal wines, but more importantly supported the next generation of wine makers who are in accredited viticulture and enology programs at major universities in this country.
As a regular in the vineyards of Paso Robles and California Central Coast, Lisa also enjoys wine adventures in over 30 countries in sensational places like Argentina, Chile, France, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Spain and Countless Caribbean Islands. She’s an adventure seeker with a passion for hiking and biking . . . and anything outdoors (or on water). Lisa loves to work hard . . . and play hard . . . and even better if it’s both at the same time!
My favorite trips have ranged from horseback riding through Patagonia and discovering age-old wines in private cellars of Uco Valley, kayaking with whales and winemakers, ultimate four-wheeling through the canyons of Hawaii to plant my own koa legacy tree in honor of my loved ones, biking and hiking through Grand Canyon, Bryce & Zion National Parks, bridge climbing in Portugal and railing across Spain with fine wines…to name just a few! Never to forget the numerous family reunions with my husband, two sons, four grandchildren and our families in Argentina and Indiana, and my parent’s first visit ever trip to Hawaii for their special renewal of vows in Maui before my father passed away from cancer.
