Justine Sterling represents the first of the third generation to join the winery. She graduated from Dartmouth College in 2007 and earned a masters degree in journalism from New York University, with a focus on magazine writing. A freelancer, living in New York she has blogged for Chef Eric Ripert and also has contributed articles for Saveur, Wine & Spirits and Time Out New York (both on-line and in print), while holding down a job at Best Cellars Upper Westside.
Her role at Iron Horse includes representing the family at distributor events, in-store tastings, restaurant staff trainings, and writing a blog for the winery website. The purpose of the blog is to report on special events, great pairings and all the other terrific experiences a young woman in wine can have in New York. All in-store tastings will be posted on the website.
At 24, Justine is already an accomplished foodie. She is naturally very knowledgeable about Iron Horse. Her early tasting experiences include the family's Thanksgiving tradition of thieving freshly fermented wines from the barrel with the caveat that she and her siblings could keep tasting as long as they could conjure up new descriptors with each sip. Having grown up on the vineyard, she can tell the stories behind the wines. She passed the Master Sommelier Level I exam this spring, after taking Jay James' course.
