When she isn’t hard at work with her incredible trademark team, Ashley enjoys learning as much as she can about wine. From attending tastings anywhere she can, to attending seminars discussing the wine industry and the intersection of wine and the law, Ashley is very interested in constantly learning more about the nuances of wine making. When she’s not learning about wine, she enjoys playing board games with her friends, playing with her little dog, Lola, and her son, Apollo, playing volleyball any chance she can get, and satisfying her never-ending desire to travel all around the world.
