Ethnifacts Blogger Scholarship Recipient: Regine Rousseau of Shall We Wine!
Meet Regine Rousseau, Wine Bloggers Conference Scholarship and Ethnifacts Diversity Scholarship Recipient!
With a mission of Learn, Drink and Repeat, Regine Rousseau of Shall We Wine dedicates her blog dedicated to sharing her passion for wine. She has shown herself to be a natural fit for the Wine Blogger’s Conference, and we are excited to have her at her first WBC.
Regine is the recipient of the inaugural EthniFacts Diversity in Wine Writing Scholarship, which was designed to encourage ethnic, gender, and cultural diversity in the North American Wine Bloggers Conference attendees.
Her blog is unique because it is so multi-faceted. Regine’s passion for consumer education motivated her to create Shall We Wine TV where she interviews wine industry professionals. In addition to a traditional wine blog, she also uses her background as a fiction writer to make wine a central character in a fictional series called the Champagne Diaries focusing on the love lives of four friends and the champagne or sparkling centered around each story.
Regine is particularly excited to be joining the Wine Bloggers Conference as she sees writing as a lonely passion, and has her creativity ignited when in the company of other writers. And that, Regine, is exactly why the Wine Bloggers Conference was founded! She is particularly eager to better understand the business of blogging and become a better wine blogger.
Regine holds her Level II certification from The International Sommelier Guild, has also written wine columns for two Chicago newspapers and is currently pursuing a Master of Champagne certification from The French Society. We love an overachiever!
