Wine Geek of the Week Anna-Christina Cabrales

Welcome to the Wine Geek of the Week
Where I ask my favorite wine geeks shitty questions!
.
This week's guest is  Anna-Christina Cabrales @annachristina722 founder of @sommationlive
Tell us a bit about yourself. Why are you a wine geek?
I am a wine professional, thank you very much! I read things, taste things, and make people around me happy with delicious grape juice. 
.
Extraterrestrials just landed on earth. What wine do you pour them?
Anything that they point to and beg them not to probe or kill me. Maybe I can even get them drunk and take over their Coravin shaped spaceship!!!!
(now with bluetooth) 
.
What's your favorite scent you have ever smelled in a wine?
More wine. No one likes an empty glass.
.
Any favorite music or podcasts you like to listen to while you drink wine?
Disco.
.
If you could visit any wine region in the world right now what would it be any why?
Champagne so I can drown in it.
.
What do you think is the most exciting thing going in the world of wine right now?
That things are getting turnt up! Let’s build a long table where everyone has a seat. F all the haters, you’re not invited.
.
What would you like to see in the future of wine?
For more women to rise up and go chase their ambitions! We have incredible palates, handle pressure with grace and can even make diamonds out of whatever is handed to us.
.
What advice would you give yourself looking back to when you first started working in the wine industry?
Do not waste another second on people who tell you that you don’t belong in this space or remotely make you feel this way. You belong in this community, and bring the whole gang with you!
.
Who are some people that inspire you in the world of wine?
Everyone and anyone who actually will take the time to sit and get to know me. I get lost in everyone’s stories and the sparkle in their eye when they tell it. It shapes my world and perspective. I’m not well traveled. I was a buyer who didn’t get invited to many trips. I treasure all the stories shared with me over wine.
.
