Adjunct Instructor, Wine Marketing
Tell us about your role:
I am an Adjunct Instructor in Wine Marketing for Tompkins Cortland Community College, teaching my classes out of the Coltivare Amphitheater. I have been providing community wine and food education classes, charitable and private events at Coltivare for a few years through my company WineByAnnemarie, LLC, http://winebyannemarie.com.
How did you come to join the Coltivare team?
I have a passion for wine and food and love sharing it with others. It is a natural fit that I work with the Coltivare team; the great people, the beautiful space, and the whole local, farm to table direction strongly reflects my own ideals.
Promoting the education of great wine and food primarily from our great Finger Lakes region is what makes Coltivare great and a pleasure to be involved with!
Favorite feature of the Finger Lakes region?
Cornell University brought me to this area and I loved it so much, I settled here. The Finger Lakes region is beautiful, with all the waterfalls, lakes, rolling hills, amazing and friendly people and the perfect place to make and taste great wines!
Favorite kind of food?
Our Finger Lakes region is lush with great food and wine; fresh, local and sustainably produced. I love picking up some locally made artisan cheese, bread and charcuterie along with some great local wine and enjoy while taking in all of the natural beauty our area highlights!
