The Wine Company

ANN AVANT

After years of living here + there, working in bookstores + libraries, my work-life in wine began in 1993. In 2000, The Wine Company offered me the opportunity to return home to Minnesota and to work with this remarkable group of people.

My hectic workdays spent on the computer, coordinating shipments from around the world, are blissfully balanced by my computer-free life away from the office, where I love to read, do yoga, dine out with friends, and take walks with my dog, Saima.

My desert island wines are Champagne, Riesling, Chenin Blanc, and Burgundy, but my glass is often full of dry Rosé, Grüner Veltliner, Dolcetto, or the occassional Pelforth Brune (as pictured – Riems, France).
