Ashley Lewis fell in love with wine on a trip to Napa Valley in 2016. Since then, her appreciation has only grown through wine experiences in Italy, Austria, and Switzerland. It was on a trip to the Wachau Valley in Austria that she decided to launch The Social Grapes and devote her Instagram account to wine. Ashley is passionate about exploring off-the-beaten-path wineries and regions. Her mission is to empower fellow wine lovers to explore with confidence through delivering fun, educational content. Simply put, she just wants everyone to have a good time and savor the moment. In order to broaden her understanding and help others elevate their wine experience, she became certified in WSET levels 1 through 3 within a year. Ashley is currently enrolled as a French Wine Scholar candidate through Wine Scholar Guild and looks forward to rocking her exam this spring. In addition to sipping, studying, and sharing all about wine… she is also a military spouse, finance manager, and mother to a beautiful baby girl (and super-cute puppy @stayclassywalter).
