About The Founder
Founder and Chief Wine Educator
Lauren Volper founded WineUp in 2018 in response to the need for wine education, especially in the millennial market segment. While working as a server at Absinthe in San Francisco, she noticed that customers often did not know how to properly express their preferences and had many misconceptions about wine.
Ready to combine her passion of education and wine, Lauren decided to launch the first wine education service of its kind.
She has a formal wine education, industry wine training, and a BS in Food & Beverage Management from Johnson & Wales University. She has over 10 years of experience interacting with consumers in the wine service industry. Lauren has also created wine training manuals for a major retailer.
