& Distinguished Professor of Wine, Sonoma State Univ.
Wine is her passion. In little more than a decade, Liz Thach achieved a Master of Wine, was awarded a Fulbright to teach in Argentina about the business of wine and began teaching at Sonoma State University, where she currently serves as Distinguished Professor of Wine. Liz was recently appointed as an Emeritus member of the PGWA Board of Directors, in recognition of her efforts to assist with the establishment of the Petaluma Gap AVA. In her spare time, she writes children's books, is a professional wine judge, and makes Pinot Noir from her own hobby vineyard. Here's her story.
