My name is Lauren Dickinson, and I’ve recently joined Uvinum to help out with the US and UK markets where the site’s presence is developing very quickly.
Although I currently live in Barcelona, I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and worked in the wine industry there for several years before moving to Europe last August. I am happy to be working with my passion for wine here again, now combined with the excitement of joining a team that’s part of the movement to develop the online world of wine, which I believe offers many chances to bring all kinds of wine drinkers together, from peers to professionals, to share what we know and enjoy and learn from others.
Living here I enjoy tasting all kinds of Spanish wines, particularly the reds from Priorat, and the Cavas from just outside Barcelona, although I have to admit once in a while I get homesick for the Napa Cabs I was raised on (I think my very first taste of wine was thanks to Warren Winiarski’s Stag’s Leap) and the Central Coast Pinots and Dry Creek Zinfandels that I had recently come to love. But I am always finding new favorites to recommend to friends back home!
I look forward to hearing from you and learning about which wines you’re trying.
