Amanda Maynard is a Wineing Woman. Only 25, she is currently working in the wine industry from her home town of Boston. As an attendee, and scholarship recipient at the 2010 Wine Bloggers Conference in Walla Walla, Amanda knows first hand how important the scholarship and the WBC are.
At 21, she started her love affair with wine. The more she drank it, the more she was fascinated by it. In the early stages of her tasting career, she happened across a WSET Intermediate course which inspired her to learn more about wine, and challenged her to think about wine in depth.
Last year, in Walla Walla, she met other bloggers, was inspired by other attendees, and learned from rock stars of the wine world about different styles of writing and blogging, as well as developing lasting friendships with other attendees. Attending the conference gave her more perspective of why she blogs and why she is passionate about wine.
Keep up the good work Amanda! Thank you for being an inspiration to all of us, and for supporting the next generation of WBC Scholarship recipiants!
