After her third year in college studying abroad at the University of Madrid, Atlanta-born April Cullom traded in the southern US for southern Spain, a move that led to a career in wine. April has cultivated relationships with rising-star wine makers over the past 15 years while promoting and educating trade, press and consumers about Spanish wines as a certified Spanish wine expert and educator. April’s experience, “love affair” with Spain for the past 30 years combined with her passion for the country’s wine and food was the inspiration to create a selection of wines from various parts of Spain under the Casa Abril and Alma de Vino labels – a true labor of love.
Each wine strives to reflect the “terroir-trilogy” of the expression of the varietals based on the climate, the soil and the topography of the place where grapes are grown. April and the family enologists from each winery have created the wines together, striving to reflect the local nuances of the vineyard while respecting Mother Nature.
April's credentials include WSET Advance with Honors, Certified Spanish Wine Expert.
