Biography

Christine Ansbacher is one of the nation's most sought-after wine speakers because she injects a healthy dose of theatrics and humor into her commentary via cartoons, quips, quotes, and jokes. She knocks the stuffing out of the stuffy world of wine by avoiding the typical "vino babble" about soil, climate, and how a wine smells like blueberries with a whiff of smoky bacon fat and tar. Instead, she shares practical tips to help regular wine drinkers save time, money, and aggravation.

“Don’t spend more than $50,000 on wines for my dinner party.” These instructions jumpstarted Ms. Ansbacher’s interest in wine. At the time, she worked for a member of the Vanderbilt family who was a prominent philanthropist and social figure in New York society. This man didn't go shopping like a mere mortal. Oh no, he collected art, wine, and books in the manner of a Renaissance prince. Ms. Ansbacher’s interest in wine grew when he asked her to build and stock a wine cellar with fine and rare wines that grew to 30,000 bottles over three years. During that time, learning about wine became a passion, and she decided to make it her profession.

Today, Christine Ansbacher is a wine expert with two world-class wine certifications and author of Secrets from the Wine Diva: Tips on Buying, Ordering & Enjoying Wine (2006). All this technical expertise could mean that she now speaks "vino babble” delighting in explaining how the soil and climate influence the taste of a wine. However, that is not her style. Instead, she focuses on sharing practical tips that save regular wine drinkers time, money, and aggravation.

Ms. Ansbacher was dubbed "The Wine Diva” at a wine tasting dinner held at the Metropolitan Opera in New York because she's not just a wine educator, but a wine entertainer who instructs with a healthy dose of theatrics, quips, quotes, and jokes. She agrees with Benjamin Franklin who once said, "Wine should be a laugh, not a lecture.”

Christine Ansbacher is based in Manhattan but travels all over the US to appear at corporate events. Her clients range from small companies to icons like AT&T, Goldman Sachs, Pepsi, Pizza Hut, and Sony.
