Pamela Busch has been an influential member of the wine industry for over thirty years. She has founded and directed wine bars in the San Francisco area, taught wine classes, and has spent the last 15 years writing about wine in the San Francisco Examiner and on her own blog, The Vinguard.
She was one of the first wine directors to focus on natural wines and bring more awareness to the natural wine movement, especially in California.
Busch started out as an assistant for a publisher in NYC, but feeling uninspired and looking for more, she got a temporary job at Astor Wines, which turned into a multi-year experience and resulted in her moving to San Francisco to work in wine full-time. Once the wine bug hits you, it can be hard to leave it behind!
