Anna Ward’s passion for wine and travel grew from returning home to the Vineyard from college during summer breaks to work at local restaurants and save up for trips around the world. Funny enough, they were all BYOB, but some of the bottles brought in unveiled to her the world of fine wine more than a wine list ever could. She is now a Wine Specialist at Skinner Auctions, having worked previously at Sotheby’s Wine and Lower Falls Wine Company and is certified with Merit from the Wine and Spirits Educational Trust, Level 3. She resides in Boston where she loves nothing more than sharing wine with friends around a table laden with home cooking and dogs under-feet.
