About PositiveVines

You may wonder why I chose the name PositiveVines for my venture. For me a good bottle of wine shared with friends and family is one of the most positive things that I can do! I love sharing my experiences, a good meal and a good bottle of wine.

Even if you aren’t a lover of wine or don’t drink, come along with me on this journey.

A little about Diane of PositiveVines:

I am a Master Gardener in the state of Texas, WSET 1 certified, wife, mother and lover of great foods and wines! I’ve learned through my experiences that everyone can appreciate wine no matter what their budget. While some of the best varietals can be quite expensive remember that you can get a great wine for everyday drinking or special occasions at great prices. For the past 3 years, I have been an active participant in the Wine Blogger’s Conference where I learn something new each year about grape varietals. 

I have combined my love of agriculture and wine starting out as an independent wine sampler for a variety of vineyards, bottlers and spirits vendors. I am a grape harvester and have a background in the use of chemicals in agricultural technique for the elimination and minimization of pest issues. 

Each sampling experience will be posted here so that you can learn about some great wines and the people behind the production of the wines.

It’s been a great journey learning about the vast varieties of wine and working with my wife providing technical content review. In 2018, I attended my first Wine Blogger’s Conference and with Lewis Perdue’s class learned much more on how to support this blog.
