Instructor Bio: Joy Barthelmes

California girl, who loves wine and now lives in Beautiful Colorado! Growing up in California and being able to travel some of the best wines around, I became a wine snob. I loved drinking big, bold cabs, but hated the headaches, hangovers, and acid reflux from most big reds. I started drinking Scout & Cellar, clean-crafted wine 3 years ago and have never looked back. Scout & Cellar was founded in 2017 by Sarah Shadonix, another wine lover and former lawyer. Our commitment is to bring you clean wine that is sustainably grown in healthy soil, no artificial processing aids or added sugars, independently lab tested to meet high standards, and taste great to do better for our planet and improve the way we live.
