Deborah Alfaro, Pairing Experts
Deborah Alfaro, Wine Ambassador for Pacific Highway Wine and Spirits is passionate about how wine and food bring people together and create memorable occasions. Originally from Dublin, Ireland she learned the appreciation of wine and food at a young age both at home in Ireland and while in college studying in Brussels, Belgium. When Deborah had the opportunity to move to the US, she worked in the wine distribution business at executive levels and after a 20+ year career in wine distribution and wine education, having traveled to winemaking regions all over the world, and having worked with many of the world’s top winemakers, she decided to go into the brand creation and importation side of the business. Pacific Highway Wine and Spirits is creating and importing exciting and dynamic wine brands from South Africa, Italy, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia based on what they believe are what consumers, particularly female consumers, are looking for when they shop the wine aisles and why these wines resonate with the consumer. Now a resident of Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, and a working Mom, Deborah will take us through a fun evening of delicious food and wine pairings in a casual beach-themed dinner, perfect for summer beach and pool party ideas.
