Sarah Doyle is a seasoned food and drink professional with extensive experience in journalism, copywriting, marketing, social media, and hospitality. With a bent on food, Scotch whisky, wine, and travel, her writing has appeared in over 50 publications, including the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the Washington Post, Sunset, Wine Enthusiast, Gourmet, Wine & Spirits, Saveur, Food & Wine, Town & Country Travel, and Robb Report, among others. A graduate of the professional culinary training program at the Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City, Sarah has gone on to develop original recipes for magazines and wineries, including Cooking Light, Self, Health, Cooking Pleasures, and Nobilo Wine Estates.

An accidental Scotch whisky aficionado, Sarah is a proud graduate of Bruichladdich Distillery's Malt Whisky Academy on the Isle of Islay, Scotland, where she studied under the famed whisky icon, Jim McEwan. She became so enamored by Islay, that she decided to move there to immerse herself in everything whisky. Sarah has written about Scotch for the New York Times, the Boston Globe, Saveur, Robb Report, US Airlines magazine, and other publications.  
*Although wine has taken over much of her life, Scotch whisky remains her greatest passion and she aspires to be a whisky brand ambassador.

With eight years of experience in the wine industry, Sarah has managed the marketing, social media, tasting room, and wine club programs of numerous wineries. She loves getting dirty in the cellar and learning the unique winemaking techniques that each winemaker employs. Sarah has worked harvests at Niner Wine Estates, Sextant Winery, and Tolo Cellars in Paso Robles, Calif., and has studied enology and viticulture at the college level.

As you might gather, Sarah is the adventurous type. She has traveled to over 20 countries for story coverage where she has witnessed a gang of lions attack a water buffalo, judged a vodka competition in the Arctic Circle, eaten a sea sponge in Taiwan, and picnicked with the Bedouins in Israel. She recommends that you never lose your luggage in Italy.
