About the Founder

Christine Fife

Founder, Certified Specialist of Wine and Marketing Expert

Christine Fife is the Founder of Uncorking Sonoma, and as a Certified Specialist of Wine herself, she often conducts tastings for Sonoma visitors. With a bachelor’s degree in theater arts and a master’s degree in marketing communications, Sonoma Valley wineries have become the perfect stage for her to help people understand and appreciate wine.

“Many people are nervous about going wine tasting because for too long fine wine seemed like a snooty thing to be interested in. But here in Sonoma, you don’t have to feel that way. Great wine is for everyone and everyone starts out knowing nothing,” says Christine. “You can see from this picture of my first harvest, winemaking is not glamorous! It’s a lot of hard work to grow amazing grapes, harvest them and get them fermenting, but the final product makes it well worth the effort!”
