I’d Like to Introduce Myself…

by Lauren Dickinson

My name is Lauren Dickinson, and I’ve recently joined Uvinum to help out with the US and UK markets where the site’s presence is developing very quickly.

Although I currently live in Barcelona, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and worked in the wine industry there for several years before moving to Europe last August.  I am happy to be working with my passion for wine here again, now combined with the excitement of joining a team that’s part of the movement to develop the online world of wine, which I believe offers many chances to bring all kinds of wine drinkers together, from peers to professionals, to share what we know and enjoy and learn from others.

Living here I enjoy tasting all kinds of Spanish wines, particularly the reds from Priorat, and the Cavas from just outside Barcelona, although I have to admit once in a while I get homesick for the Napa Cabs I was raised on (I think my very first taste of wine was thanks to Warren Winiarski’s Stag’s Leap) and the Central Coast Pinots and Dry Creek Zinfandels that I had recently come to love.  But I am always finding new favorites to recommend to friends back home!

I look forward to hearing from you and learning about which wines you’re trying.
