Taj grew up in tenement slums of Chicago and credits great teachers for nurturing the power of imagination.  Appreciation of wine as food came from slow dinners with her chosen family, who encouraged her to pursue her intuitive palate as a professional.

"Wine is alive.  A living, breathing organism that thrives and changes like people do.  The art and science of wine is a feeling for me, a life calling. Novovino love was an organic attraction. A unique opportunity to work with a portfolio and a team in a league of its own.  From classic to rarely known varietals, Novovino is poised to deepen its impact on the wine game in fresh and exciting ways."

Taj has a list of accolades, but more importantly, a mission to create experiences that make the exotic approachable and fun for you!
