Demand diversity: Ethnifacts Diversity Grant Announced

Meet Julian Miquel, founder of Social Vignerons, winemaker, blogger and overall passionate wine lover is the recipient of this year’s EthniFacts Diversity Scholarship.

“Sometimes you just have to create a community that you want to be part of,” he says.  He founded the blog to build a worldwide community of passionate wine lovers and professionals to share a passion, knowledge, ethnifactstime and a good laugh.”

Last year, Julian was named the Wine Blogger’s Conference 2015 Best New Blog award. Unfortunately, due to his geographic location and lack of resources, he was not able to attend the conference to celebrate this milestone. This is the year he is dedicated to sharing his vision of making wines fun, interesting and approachable at this year’s conference.

He is a former winemaker, strategic developer of Wine-Searcher.com and overall Renaissance man dedicated to putting his passion, talent and effort into every piece of coverage about wine, its industry and the people who make what we drink on a daily basis.
