I’m Laurie, and welcome to centralcoastwinepress.com. Happy to meet you! I am a California native who made her way south down the coast of California after graduating from Western Washington University with a degree in journalism.
Before beginning my wine writing career in 2005, I worked as a news editor, copy editor and, briefly, as a business reporter, for nearly 25 years at five newspaper companies
throughout this great state. I give thanks to those newspapering years for instilling in me a fondness for color and fonts, photography, good headlines and strong coffee.
I love the beauty of the Central Coast, with the ocean and mountains, hills and vineyards, and plan to live here forever.
