Inga Varney, owner of Wine Star Services, is first and foremost a wine enthusiast! While she has enjoyed sipping on wine for many years, she started becoming a more serious “wine-know” in 2011 when she began writing a blog with a simple goal – to learn more about wine!
After a short period of time, Inga realized that she truly enjoyed studying wine as much as she did sipping on it! She began taking classes at the International Wine Guild and is now a Level II Certified Executive Sommelier.
After spending many years working in Strategic Process Improvement as a contractor for the U.S. Navy, she decided to pursue her passion for wine professionally and changed career paths. She spent some time working as a wine distributor in the Valley of the Sun helping restaurants and retailers select wines for their target market. She also facilitated in-home wine parties for wine-lovers where she was able to share her expertise in wine in a relaxed and fun setting.
Eventually, Inga launched Wine Star Services to provide an assortment of wine consulting services to consumers, caterers, restaurants, and wine retailers. She hosts educational wine tastings events, consults on wine and food pairing and menu development, and conducts staff wine training, and offers a variety of other wine solutions!
Inga is passionate about connecting with others over a glass of wine and helping people find the wine they love!
