CEO Nia Ruth Wine Club

Nia is a wine-loving psychologist turned Wine Expert and Wine Club Founder. While completing her PhD in psychology research at NYU and working for several years consulting in the social welfare space, she’d fallen completely in love with wine, and has since completed her WSET 3, started blogging about wine, became the wine columnist at San Diego Magazine, and traveled far and wide visiting vineyards and trying some of the world’s most delicious wines throughout Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece, South Africa, Morocco, Croatia, Israel, Mexico, and across the U.S.

During that time she learned the value of small-batch wine and how difficult small production wines are to identify and access, and late last year, she took the plunge, left her 9 to 5, and began working on her Wine Club full-time so that she can bring delicious small-batch wines directly to wine lovers’ doorsteps all across the country!

Her goal is to source the most delicious small production, hard-to-find wines and teach her members how to choose bottles they’ll absolutely love, whether they’re overwhelmed at the wine shop or ordering a glass of wine with dinner at their favorite restaurant. Her Club also connects members directly to small producers at their monthly live tastings, and introduces them to a wine-loving community to give a one-of-a-kind, like you’re at the winery experience!
