After a 15-year career in marketing and communications at a Fortune 500 company, Julie Murphy embarked on a year-long sabbatical in France in 2016. Inspired by conversations with winemakers at a Paris expo during the Fall of 2015, she made extensive contacts and began systematically making her way across France discovering new wines and developing friendships with the people who produce them. Julie is fluent in French and excited to ‘tap’ her wine knowledge and contacts with us.
