Michelle was born in Chicago and raised in the north suburbs where she learned to appreciate her irish & french heritage and all things food and beverage related. Working in and out of restaurants during college brought her early exposure to wine, but a keener interest emerged years later after a visit to Napa. A part time gig as an independent wine tasting rep led her to a career in wine sales in 2014.
Rhone reds and Burgundy whites are her "go to" favorite wines. Working at Novovino has expanded her horizons to appreciate wines and terroirs from other regions of our vast world.
Michelle enjoys stolen moments with her family, yoga to quiet the mind, outdoor concerts and alfresco dining (weather permitting) where she can be found with a glass of wine in hand. .
Michelle joined Novovino in February 2017.
