JUSTIN MICHELLE WARD TRABUE
Head Wine Witch 🔮
Originally from Washington, DC, Justin was destined for the wine industry. With over 7 years of luxury winemaking experience in both the US and Internationally, as well as a degree in Wine Business at Cal Poly SLO, Justin is so excited to share her craft with you!
In 2016, Justin moved abroad to Adelaide, Australia where she discovered her passion for winemaking. Shortly after moving back to the US she got down and dirty at her first harvest internship in Santa Barbara CA. Since then she has completed 14 vintages with some of the best producers in the world, gaining a special fondness and appreciation for low intervention, intentional winemaking that honors the sense of place.
When she is not in the cellar you can find Justin in the kitchen, watching scary films, thinking up her next fantasy world, or chatting over a glass of wine, pet rat on shoulder.
