"V" aka Vanessa, attended the Washington Wine Academy in Washington, D.C. where she received her professional wine certifications and diplomas from the Wine & Spirits Educational Trust.


Prior to living in Montana, Vanessa worked as a vineyard hand in wineries in Argentina, Chile, and Italy. She spent 12 years working directly for international wine importers and the wineries they represented abroad. After devoting many years and miles to making the finest wines in the world available in the States, she decided it was time to return to her small town mountain-roots.


Vanessa is the founder of WINES by V, a national wine club and wine consulting business based out of Montana. Her goal is to share the fine wines of the world, with the fine people of the west.  

WINES by V offers wine club memberships to those locally. V pre-tastes and pre-approves two wines for members to enjoy in their home each month. 


V also provides wine classes, wine menu consulting, and specializes in hosting customized wine tasting events for both corporate and private parties. Her wine expertise, combined with her friendly, and engaging approach, appeals to the masses and yields successful events and happy customers for all of her clients.
