More Than Another Wine Blog


to the Más Allá Wines Blog where owner, Cleo, will share some of her growing wine knowledge, musings, and more. Cleo is a former high school English teacher turned natural winery owner, and she also carries a WSET 2 certification with distinction.

Her love and passion for wine–especially natural wine– is what inspired her to start Más Allá, but she can’t shake her educator background. Cleo hopes you see this blog as more than just “another wine blog.”

This blog is intended to be a fun and light-hearted space to share what Cleo learns about wine with her audience. If she has helped you cultivate a love of wine through her words (and her wine), then she has done her job…and then some.

In following this blog, you may learn more about a winery in California, Oregon, Lebanon, or beyond. You may pick up tips about some good red wines (Cleo’s fave). She may even answer questions you might have like “where did wine originate?” or “how can I find local wineries near me?”

Have a specific question about wine? Feel free to contact Cleo and she will do her best to get you the answer. Yes, really.

To receive updates of each post straight to your inbox, join the Más Allá newsletter. In addition to blog updates, you’ll also receive news about our wine, upcoming events, deals, and more.

Read on to go “más allá” with your wine knowledge.

Cheers and happy reading.
