400-word bio
Terry and Kathy Sullivan are authors and wine travel writers. They own Wine Trail Traveler LLC, a winery and vineyard virtual visitor center. Over the past decade, Terry and Kathy traveled to wineries throughout the world and wrote articles about the experiences on the website http://winetrailtraveler.com. The website was developed in 2007. Since late 2006 they have visited and written about over 1,300 wineries in North America, Europe and Oceania. 

Their first book, A Wine Journey was published in November 2012. The book explores what interested wine enthusiasts can do to learn about wine, make wine and travel to wine regions. Their second book, A Wine Tourist’s Guide: Visiting Tasting Rooms was published in September 2013. This book is about visiting tasting rooms, expectations, etiquette, common international grapes and more. Their third book, Georgia, Sakartvelo: the Birthplace of Wine was published in March 2014. This book looks at the wonderful wine story of what is now the country Georgia. Wine grapes were cultivated and wine continuously made in Georgia for 8,000 years. This is thousands of years prior to viticulture and winemaking in Western Europe. Their fourth book A Wine Lexicon: Increasing Your Knowledge was published in January 2017. Much of their present time is devoted to author talks and book signings.

The couple has been making wine since 2008 deciding that since they were writing about wine they should start making it. Over that time Terry and Kathy have made wine at home, at a Virginia winery and at a Maryland winery. With the 2013 harvest, they made a qvevri-wine in the country Georgia. While in Georgia, they helped to harvest Rkatsiteli, a white grape, in September 2013 and destemmed the grapes and placed them in a small qvevri buried in the ground at Twins Wine Cellar of Napareuli. They opened the qvevri in April 2014 when they returned to Georgia for the International Wine Tourism Conference. They returned to the United States with a small qvevri that is now buried underground. They have made three vintages in this qvevri. Qvevri winemaking is the only winemaking protocol that is on the UNESCO list of Intangible Cultural Heritage.

They have presented at several wine conferences including the International Wine Tourism Conferences in Perugia, Italy, Zagreb, Croatia and Tbilisi, Georgia. Terry also presented at the Eastern Winery Exposition in Lancaster and the Wine Bloggers Conference in Corning, New York.
