1:04 How Monique got her start in broadcasting and saw an opportunity to create her own show, Wine Oh! TV.

5:45 Wine Oh! TV had early distribution to the streaming services but it was a one-woman show led by Monique.

7:10 Monique’s interest in wine started in New York where she worked restaurants and was exposed to fine wine.

11:30 After a great tragedy, Monique re-grouped and is now launching a new six episode season of Wine Oh! TV with a focus on community and connecting through wine.

15:00 For Monique, connecting is key–wine is the through line for her show.

19:00 The new season is built around three big questions 1.What is the thing to drink in this location? 2.What are you going to eat? 3. What is there to do or what is culturally significant?

21:55 Monique’s favorite spot to go? Northern Sonoma County of course–no kidding!
