HI I’m Regine Rousseau!
Regine T. Rousseau fell in love with wine during a college study abroad trip to Besançon, France. Bitten by the wine bug early on, she began her career in the beverage industry as a salesperson for a wine distributor. While in this role Rousseau noticed how the barrier of “wine speak” formed a disconnect between wine professionals and consumers. Inspired to bridge the gap, Rousseau started her company Shall We Wine, a wine, spirits and beer tasting company based in Chicago.
Language is also integral to Rousseau’s work as a poet and published author where wine and written word are often interwoven. In her latest book, Searching for Cloves and Lilies: The Wine Edition (published April 2018), Rousseau boldly illustrates the dynamics of personal relationships while pairing each poem with wine that echoes the mood of her writing. Her international 2018/2019 book tour was hosted at City Winery (multi -cities USA), American Bookstore (Rome, Italy) and other venues.
