Erin’s career in wine began with sales in the city where she was born — Washington, DC. She soon landed a coveted position in the Barossa Valley, Australia, followed by rewarding years in San Francisco, CA and Denver, CO. In addition to wine sales, she has focused on importation with a specialty of developing new markets. Erin currently resides in Miami, FL where her own company Drink the Rent — an importer of French wines — is based. She also manages key wine portfolios and direct imports for Maverick Beverage Company of Florida. She spends her free time in the water with her husband and 2-year-old daughter, soon to be joined by a son in September 2023! Erin is rarely found without a pen in hand.
