For this week’s Bit by a Fox Podcast, I spoke with journalist, award-winning wine blogger, photographer, Masters of Wine candidate, and newly appointed Travel Editor for Wine Enthusiast, Lauren Mowery.
As we sipped from a bottle of bubbly from an up-and-coming wine region (that Lauren brought along to the podcast studio), we discussed her exciting new role as Travel Editor for Wine Enthusiast. She gave us some great travel tips, what regions she’s most looking forward to visiting this next year, and which wines should be on our radar.
I love Lauren’s relatable approach to wine, her insatiable curiosity about the world, and never-ending wanderlust. It was so great to have her on for this episode and to get a chance to celebrate her enviable new job!

Lauren’s recommended cocktail was a simple one that included wine, of course!
Sauternes is a type of sweet wine from the Bordeaux region in France. They can be incredibly cost prohibitive because the grapes are hand picked and the cost of production is very high. However, there are affordable bottles to be had with a little searching. It is SO worth it, I assure you! This Sauternes Aperitif is a wonderful way to enjoy one of these bottles come spring and summer…
Pour 5-6 ounces of chilled Sauternes over ice, twist the orange over the glass and drop into the drink. Enjoy!
