Amy’s foray into the wine world began with a childhood dream to win an Oscar. While she waited for her golden statue, she worked as a sommelier at one of LA’s finest restaurants. This translated into a weekend jaunt to Santa Barbara where she met her future husband and fellow Black Sheep, Peter Hunken. A whirlwind romance involving a terrible, but cheap, apartment in Koreatown, countless hours of Ryan Adams and Damien Rice songs and bottles upon bottles of Muller Catoir Riesling turned serious. On a long hike in Santa Barbara in 2005, the idea of Black Sheep Finds was bantered about and just a few months later the first Syrah grapes for Hocus Pocus were being made into wine. Unlike the Oscar it all happened so fast. However, someone in the family must have a real job, so Amy works for a small boutique Burgundy and Bordeaux Importer and still ‘works the floor’ as a sommelier at that fateful LA restaurant. In her spare time Amy is studying for the title of Master of Wine, supports for her favorite charity, Kidsave, and enjoys writing about herself in the third person.
