She takes on the mantle of RFT Wine, Brews, & Spirits Editor Northwest. Originally from Chicago, Nancy is a 23-year resident of the Pacific Northwest. She’s lived in Bellingham, Washington, Vancouver, British Columbia, and now Portland, Oregon.
Nancy comes to realfoodtraveler.com with a background in newspapers and it’s her fine stories about the Northwest’s wineries, breweries, restaurants, resorts and hotels that have earned her the Wine, Brews, & Spirits Editor position for the Northwest region.
It’s an exciting time in the Northwest in the world of wine, beers, ciders, and spirits. Nancy says she appreciates the beauty, bounty and spirit of the Northwest’s food and beverage scene and finds it great fun to share stories about the creative people involved. She finds their commitment to fresh, local ingredients and attention to flavor and process is as refreshing as the libations themselves.
According to Nancy, there are worse gigs than covering the “libations beat” for realfoodtraveler.com. Her friends are not surprised to learn of her new editorial designation.
Welcome, Nancy. We look forward to even more fabulous stories from you. — Bobbie Hasselbring, RFT Editor
