Vinously Speaking began as a wine blog in March of 2009 as a way for its founder, Veronique Cecilia Barretto, to document her experience in her Masters in Wine Business studies at The Burgundy School of Business in Dijon, France. After her studies she returned to her hometown of San Antonio, TX in early 2011 with the intention to grow Vinously Speaking into something more. She called on her good friend and partner in wine, Melissa Unsell, and after a wine-filled, brainstorming lunch in early April 2011 a partnership was formed and an amazing vinous addition to Vinously Speaking took place. The duo hit the ground running, swirling up San Antonio’s wine culture one glass of wine at a time. At the end of 2011, the partnership took on an official form with the creation of Vinously Speaking, LLC offering private wine event services. They continue to blog about all things vinous and look forward to seeing you around the San Antonio (and surrounding) wine scene or in their virtual wine-o-sphere!
