Blogging for the last 2.5 years, Alissa is the one and only SAHMmelier! This former teacher-come-stay-at-
home-mom (and award-winning poet!), Alissa has a passion for wine, food, and education. Through her blog, SAHMmelier, Alissa aims to make wine approachable. As a foodie, she enjoys experimenting with food and wine pairings and provides recipes to her readers. As a mom, she likes to add in a little heart-felt humor or sentimental struggles, as any parent would understand.
After being involved with a strong and active community of Women Wine Writers online, Alissa is looking forward to the opportunity to meet and interact in person with many of those she calls her inspirations and mentors.
Finally, Alissa is based in the Texas Hill Country, so attending the WBC will give her the opportunity to introduce and promote Texas wine.
