Hello and thanks for stopping by!
My name is Cassandra, and I spend 99% of my time either living, travelling, writing or dreaming about wine regions and the stories of the people that make every bottle of wine unique and memorable.
Living in Margaret River, I’ve been working for many years now as a freelance wine and travel journalist, freelance travel writer, television presenter and photographer specialising in wine travel and luxe outdoor adventures for publications including ESCAPE Magazine, Delicious., Gourmet Traveller Wine and Halliday magazine and gracing the screen on Channel Nine’s Our State on a Plate. It’s an amazing career, however I can’t believe how many people email or message me every time I travel somewhere or publish a story:“Hey Cass, I know you’ve recently been to X, Y and Z, and I’m thinking of heading off there next month. Where should I stay and what was that great winery you visited for lunch?”
“Hi Cassandra, I know you’ve been to the Great Southern heaps of times, but I was just wondering how long it takes to get from A to Z, and if you think that hike you did would be too hard without boots?”
“I need some good (but not too expensive or well known or funky) local red wine tonight for my first date. What would you suggest?”
“Can you please send me your itinerary and the must-visit wineries?”
So, I’ve decided it’s time to answer all those questions and more with a new home on the internet: Earn Your Vino. I’ve developed this platform to help YOU travel deeper, more enjoyably and more easily throughout Australia’s wine regions. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and all the sweat and sipping has been worth it!
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’d like to share your stories, ideas, feedback, suggestions or just to say hello. And of course, I cannot wait to see you in person on one of our hosted experiences which we are planning regularly throughout the year.
