Lab Notes


Allison Sheardy, MW Candidate, DipWSET

Meet our newest instructor!

I came to wine as a second career and have truly found my calling. I've created a niche for myself working in unique wine regions around the country (Texas Hill Country, historic Livermore, CA, and now Minnesota) and specialize in boutique, family-owned wineries. My love for wine goes beyond my career; it is truly my raison d'etre. As such, I love learning as much as I can about the ever-expanding world of wine – I have earned my WSET Diploma in Wines and have plans to pursue the Master of Wine certification. Prior to my career in wine, I earned a Master's degree in English Language and Literature from the University of Vermont. Outside of the world of wine, I enjoy cooking and baking, hiking, travel, and spending time with my beloved black lab Cabbie.

Allison is the tasting room manager for Rustic Roots Winery in Scandia, Mn.
