Hello and welcome to BlogAboutWine.com – the blog about wine! This blog is written by Morgan and Daina – we are a couple looking to expand our wine knowledge and share our tasting experiences with others!
We both love wine but only began tasting more seriously over the past two years. Now we have begun our quest into the wine world, picked-up our first book about wine, and we’re learning something new every day. As we learn – we’ll share it with you with our own twist so you can learn about wine right along with us!
So who are we? Well…we met in Boston and have been together for over three years now. Daina is from the arctic tundra of Ontario Canada and Morgan from the tree-hugging paradise of Berkeley California.
We both studied Engineering in College but now we have both taken rather exciting paths. Daina was doing her Ph.D. in Cancer Biology at UCLA and Morgan was managing the International business for Sonos when we decided to change our lives and start a software company.
That was back in 2012, now two years later Fashion Metric, the company started by Daina and Morgan has grown to a team of five, relocated to beautiful Austin, Texas and entered the exciting world of being a venture-funded startup. While we tend to work 14+ hour days we still try to find some time for R&R and of course that often involves great wine.
We have big dreams for this blog and even though we may be writing to ourselves for the first few weeks, or months – we’ll continue to share our experiences, lessons learned along the way, and of course – passion for wine!
Happy tasting and we look forward to bringing you into the exciting world of Wine…of course if you’re already here, we hope you enjoy our adventures!
