Whitney is the lady behind the wine glass at BrunellosHaveMoreFun. Whitney was raised in Lexington, Kentucky, where bourbon is king. After three months, and countless glasses of wine in Italy, Whitney’s heart was filled with vino. Whitney solidified her obsession by becoming a Certified Sommelier and working at several wine shops and Italian restaurants around Los Angeles. She brings a fresh, fun, new world perspective to stuffy wine talk. Say hello to Whitney on Twitter, and be her friend on Facebook.
Christina Pickard hails from the Fingerlakes region of central New York, but has lived in London for 10 years. There she works as a wine presenter for TV/media, PR, corporate, and private events, getting whisked around the country and Europe to educate people about the wonderfulness of wine. She holds certificates (Merit and Distinction) from both the Intermediate and Advanced Wine and Spirits Educational Trust (WSET), which really just means she knows her stuff… and she has a tiny bit of a British accent which always helps.
