Somm-antic Drift

Johnna’s wine journey started with stories of her great grandfather importing a wine press from Alsace in the 1900’s to make table wine in Ohio. After studying chemistry and biology in college, she ventured on to harvest positions with Sterling Vineyards in Napa Valley followed by Two Hands Wines in the Barossa Valley. Her drive for hospitality led her back to the Napa Valley working as an estate host and wine educator for Stony Hill and Orin Swift. When she moved to Dallas for graduate school, her interest in wine blossomed. She continued to expand her hospitality skills and wine education through passing her certified sommelier exam during her time at Sixty Vines. Now, she works with the sommelier driven team at Trova Wine + Market and is a member of the Dallas Sommelier Society (along with her day job as a dietitian). Her favorite wines now? Syrah and Champagne of course.
