Who is ‘WineDivaa’?
My name is Martha, but my best friends have been calling me WineDivaa since college. I have always been attracted by the back-side wine labels looking for more information about the wine. I used to be the go-to person for all my friends when purchasing a wine for a special occasion. Therefore, I have transferred that passion to the digital world. Since a couple of years ago, I started blogging about wine. Besides the blog, you can find me on Instagram where I also share my wine journey and provide wine recommendations.
Nowadays, I write from New York about Wine, Food, Events, and Lifestyle-related topics. Although I have been in the technology arena since 11 years ago, I remember that originally after high school I wanted to study journalism. Actually during college, I was a radio host. Nowadays, I think of myself as a technologist and a content creator -slash- wine writer since I am in that convergence of technology, media, and wine.
Writing about wine from New York
I was born and raised in Monterrey, Mexico, but I consider myself a citizen of the World. I have lived in Mexico City, Monterrey, Madrid, Barcelona, Houston, and St Louis. Therefore, I have been influenced by different cultures. Currently, I live in New York. For these reasons, I consider myself bi-cultural and bilingual.
When I lived in Spain to complete my professional studies and even develop the initial phase of my working career, I observed that Los españolitos drank wine like water. I couldn’t do that. Growing in Mexico, the wine was not a part of our table. There was beer or tequila but never wine. Therefore, I decided to learn more about wine and start reading back labels, and I got very intrigued to know about what was in the wine.
Recently, I started learning about wines with formal education, but I have concluded that you never stop learning about wines. I am studying through the Wine Scholar Guild to become an Italian Wine Scholar. I have WSET 2 diploma with merit. The truth, and I repeat myself, is you never stop learning about wine. I just launched Latinas Wine Club Inc. a community and technological platform with wine education as corazon of the initiative where we want to Educate. Empower. Elevate. Through Wine.
