Steph & Ash talk to Chief Experience Officer at A Vine Affair, Gina Lyons. With an Instagram following of almost 18K, and featured in the Huff Post, WIN Podcast, Booze Press, and The Champagne Club, Gina Lyons has quickly made a mark in the world of wine as a champagne specialist and wine educator. During the early stages of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, champagne blogger, Gina Lyons wanted to find a way to continue to enjoy wine and culinary experiences with wine lovers from around the world from the comfort and safety of home. In March 2020, she decided to begin hosting weekly virtual wine tastings collaborating with Michelin suppliers such as Champagne Louis Roederer, Champagne Billecart-Salmon, Champagne Frerejean Frères, and later with Alex Ojeda, incorporated food and wine pairings with Sabatino Truffles and Paramount Caviar, among others. After great success, “A Vine Affair” was born to continue curating bespoke wine and food experiences for enthusiasts at every level.
