We break down the complicated world of wine into its basic elements - fun, flavor and discourse!
Debra Marchese, wine maven and founder of WINERIUM LLC, is formally trained as a pharmacist but found her passion to be the alchemy of wine.
Initially drawn to wine by an interest in its chemistry, she quickly discovered that wine has much more to offer- history, politics, culture, food pairings, flavor sensations and just plain fun. Debra is committed to demystifying and translating the complicated world of wine to make it a simple, memorable and fantastic adventure.
Prior to establishing WINERIUM LLC, Debra was a drug industry executive. Having worked for many years as a marketer in the pharmaceutical industry, Debra is skilled in developing strategy, launching and promoting products. These years gave Debra extensive experience in public speaking, which is reflected in her ease and approachability in front of groups of all sizes. The corporate experience also provided judgment to appropriately tailor presentations for a wide range of audiences – from ultra casual to corporate formal.
Debra earned a BS in pharmacy at the University of Pittsburgh, School of Pharmacy and holds the Advanced Certificate in Wine and the Professional Certificate in Spirits from the internationally renowned Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET), London, England. Debra is currently pursuing the prestigious Diploma in Wine and Spirits (DWS).
