Jo Ann Bingham, the director of Via Vino Wine Tours, brings a unique background of travel and wine industry experience to Via Vino!

Her first wine job was selling wine to help pay for college! Jo Ann (or Jo, as she likes to be called!) worked onboard cruise ships as the Port Lecturer and often helped organize winetastings for passengers.

Later, she worked for a prestigous group travel company managing luxury tours around the world for discriminating clients AND everywhere she went, she visited wine regions and tasted all kinds of wines from such places as Europe, Australia, China, South Africa and India!!

Jo Ann is a proud member of the Brotherhood of the Knights of the Vine earning the right to wear the official Tastevin of the Federation Internationale des Confreries Bachiques!


Jo Ann was also an international flight attendant for 15 years serving wine to the rich and famous as well as others!! After living in London and Hong Kong, today Jo Ann makes her home in Napa Valley where she says,

"There's no better place to be! I love sharing wine experiences with others and maybe even introducing wine yet to those who have not discovered the magic!"

"Let me design a special wine holiday just for you!!"
