Nancy Bauer

Nancy Bauer is the co-owner of Virginia Wine in My Pocket, with her husband, Rick Collier. Before launching Virginia Wine in My Pocket in 2010, Nancy and Rick visited 150 Virginia wineries in 150 days. They talked to owners, photographed vineyards, and tasted more than 1,500 Virginia wines. After a brief but necessary recuperation, they published the first – and still only – all-Virginia wineries smartphone app. The next year, they added a mobile website. Their community of followers has now grown to more than 20,000 enthusiastic wine travelers. Nancy and Virginia Wine in My Pocket partner with Virginia’s county and regional tourism offices to create original wine travel itineraries and online guides to attract visitors. Nancy also writes often for Washingtonian magazine about Virginia wine travel, pens a monthly Virginia wine column for the Old Town Crier regional magazine, and makes it a point to thoroughly taste-test every new Virginia wine vintage.
