About:

An avid traveler, Megan's passion for wine began with a trip to Champagne when she was seventeen. A tour through the historic cellars of Moët & Chandon in Épernay opened her eyes to the world of winemaking. It was there that she realized wine was truly living art, created by skilled vignerons as an expression of both time and place. Subsequent trips to vineyards in the Loire and Rhone Valleys as well as Tuscany further cemented her love of the multi-dimensional art form.

Megan graduated from Villanova University and returned to California to work for the 34th America's Cup in San Francisco. She then joined a technology company where she held sales and marketing roles before ultimately becoming the Director of Product Management.

Her close proximity to Sonoma and Napa, which she lovingly refers to as Snapa, meant vineyard and winery trips no longer had to require a 12 hour international flight. She found herself exploring new regions and producers more weekends than not. After years of weekend Snapa trips, she realized that she wanted to pursue her passion full time. Megan left her technology job at the end of 2016 and began working as an intern at Master Sommelier David Glancy's San Francisco Wine School. Here, she had the invaluable opportunity to learn from and engage with industry professionals from around the world.

Megan recently joined the team at a one Michelin Star Restaurant in the Bay Area. She credits David and the San Francisco Wine School with giving her the skills and knowledge to pursue a career in wine at a high caliber. She is currently studying for her Court of Master Sommeliers Certified Exam.
