Bonnie Graves is building a multi-platform brand around wine, travel and lifestyle. Similar to food/lifestyle personalities like Martha Stewart, Wolfgang Puck and Rachael Ray, Graves aims to share her unique wine expertise via both traditional media outlets and digital channels in a way that is informative, inclusive and fun.
Her goal is to demystify wine for the average consumer while simultaneously celebrating its unique role as a cross-cultural passport. Bonnie has extensive “insider” industry experience as a sommelier at legendary restaurants such as Jean-Georges, Union Square Café and Spago Beverly Hills, and has a wealth of contacts in the international wine and restaurant communities.
As a Harvard graduate fluent in several languages and a former actress/model, Bonnie possesses a rare combination of practical smarts and on-camera comfort. Recent television appearances include a FINE LIVING show in Santa Barbara’s wine country, KTLA’s “The Morning Show” and a feature episode on Champagne for WEALTH TV. Graves has also been featured in USA Today, Forbes, MSNBC, the Los Angeles Times, Food and Wine, Bon Appétit, Daily Variety, Patterson’s Beverage Journal and California Wine and Food.
A sought-after wine educator in the Southern California market, she frequently teaches classes and arranges tastings for corporate and private clients. Graves writes the popular “Girl Meets Grape” blog for Yahoo’s digital food channel, is a featured correspondent for WineTasteTV, a broadband channel dedicated to video wine content and is the Food and Wine Editor for Moon Tide Media (formerly Luxury Life & Style) family of print magazines.
