About

Welcome to Savor the Harvest where we focus on sharing our wine, food, and travel experiences!

Our love for and involvement in wine started casually. Lynn’s when she was in her 20s- her brother shared a Jaeger Merlot from Napa Valley. Mark’s when they were dating- Lynn took him to Sonoma Valley after a business trip to Northern California.

Our current base is Bordeaux, France and the funny thing about that is this- Bill Jaeger smitten by merlot-rich Pomerol and St. Emilion wines he had tasted in France, began planting Merlot in Napa in the 60s. He’s known as one of the original godfathers of Merlot in Napa.

We landed here the autumn of 2016. Moving to another country isn’t necessarily easy, but it’s definitely stimulating!

Lynn holds the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Advanced Wine and Spirits certification, and is a French Wine Scholar (FWS) and Italian Wine Scholar (IWS) through the Wine Scholar Guild.

Mark completed a Masters of Vineyard and Winery Management in 2017 is pursuing a PhD with the French National Institute for Agricultural Research at the Institute des Sciences de la Vigne et du Vin (ISVV).

The most rewarding aspect of what we’ve done is the people; we’ve met fabulous people not only in Bordeaux but in all the countries to which we’ve traveled!

Savor the Harvest was named a finalist in the Millesima Blog Awards in 2018 in two categories!

We’re on Twitter, Instagram, FaceBook and Delectable where you can also follow us.

Feel free to make a comment at the end of any post or send us a private note using the link in the sidebar. Either way, we’d love to hear from you!
