About Me

Susan L. Richards

Principal of Always Sharing Wine

A lifetime of traveling to wine regions around the globe inspired and fueled my interest in wine, wine culture, and the people who produce wine. I have been fortunate to visit wine regions in Argentina, New Zealand, Italy, France, Portugal, and many parts of the USA to experience and learn about wine.

In 2018, after over 30 years in healthcare, I decided it was time to focus on making my dream of working in the wine world a reality. While still working full-time in business development at a large Boston hospital, I pursued formal wine education and took on two part-time jobs in the wine industry. After achieving Level 2 and Level 3 WSET (Wine Spirit Education Trust) certification, the second highest level, I left my full-time job to embark on a new career in food and wine.

In January 2020, I became the Health, Wellness, and Wine Advisor to Suvie, a Boston-based food company. I published over 40 wine and nutrition articles for the Suvie website and Recette Magazine before leaving in 2022.

Along the way, I have also worked as a wine sales consultant for two Boston boutique wine shops, represented a small Massachusetts winery, Westport Rivers, taught at the Commonwealth Wine School and provided commercial tastings for the Tasting Company. All this work and experience has added to my wine knowledge and love of wine, especially sharing it with others.

In January of 2023, it was time to launch my own wine and food consulting company, aptly named “Always Sharing Wine,” to inspire the joy of wine in others. I enjoy providing education on grape varietals, wine regions, starting a wine cellar, wine styles, and especially food and wine pairings. I believe wine should be accessible to everyone, never intimidating, and something that connects people through a common tasting experience. Through my writing, presentations, private tastings, and consulting, I strive to excite others about the world of wine with an entertaining and engaging spirit.
