Travels from: Sonoma County, California
Expertise: Napa wine, Sonoma wine, wine tourism.
Virginie Boone reviews and writes about the wines of Napa and Sonoma for Wine Enthusiast Media, and is a longtime resident of Sonoma County. She began her writing career with Lonely Planet travel guides, writing guides to the American South, South America, Northern California and the Loire Valley, which led in a roundabout and perfectly sensible way to California-focused wine coverage for The Santa Rosa Press Democrat, Savor Magazine, Sonoma Magazine and The San Francisco Chronicle’s The Press. She is a regular speaker on California wine and wine tourism and is a big believer in making wine more approachable and accessible to all.
