Linda Kissam
'Food, Wine and Shopping Diva'

Linda Kissam is a professional travel, food, and wine writer based out of Southern California.

Through her two personas as The Wine Chix and The Wine Diva, and her Websites and she specializes in easy, breezy destination stories sharing her favorite things about the places she visits. As she sips with the winemaker, dines with the chef, or shops with the gift concierge, she dishes out insights on the fabulous, the famous and the unforgettable.

Linda loves finding and sharing what makes each place she visits so special. Her time spent as a publicist for a well-known wine region taught her it’s the story behind the product and the experience of the place that makes the trip memorable. She never knows if “the story” will end up being based on finding the perfect latté, ordering Pommes Frites with Parsley Butter in a small French bistro, searching for an Internet café in Sicily, or attending a wine seminar aboard a cruise ship. She never travels without a notebook, camera and a great pair of Brighton flats. She has an addiction to personable people, interesting wines, gourmet coffee, fabulous chocolate and spicy foods. Anyone who knows her will tell you that she loves traveling anywhere, by any means, and is somewhat obsessive about jewelry and a good taco.

Linda is now on the road sipping wine, dipping into eternity pools, piloting narrow boats in England, and concentrating on finding the best experiences for her readers.
