Erika Szymanski is the second student scholarship winner. This month, she began the PhD graduate program in Enology at Washington State University, where she will concentrate on microbial enology. She is new to wine blogging, but has combined her love of wine and love of writing in to her blog, Well Red, White, and Rose. where she expands on her tasting notes and prepares for the career of an academic.
Erika calls herself a serious amateur, and spends her time preparing for the PhD program by learning the details of winemaking from a scientific perspective. As writing is a large part of any academic’s career, she will be able to write about wine and continue her education. Erika looks forward to attending the conference to expand her local angle, and build a network on contacts while learning more about the art of blogging on her blog,
We look forward to meeting you!
