Ashley Hausman Vaughters MW (USA)

Ashley came into the wine industry in 2008 while completing her Masters in English and American Literature at New York University. She moved to Denver, Colorado in 2009 to manage Little’s Fine Wine & Spirits; in 2013, she took a position in import distribution for Old World Wine Imports, which she still represents. Ashley also teaches for the Wine Education Institute and conducts many private and public events through her own education/consulting business – Mistral Wine Co., which she formed in 2014. Former and present clients include Rocky Mountain PBS, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Alliance Française, The Italian Institute and Liv Sotheby’s International. Recently, Ashley was awarded the Commanderie de Bordeaux aux Etats Unis Scholarship for outstanding performance by a North American student in the MW Study Programme.

When she is not teaching, selling or drinking wine, she can be found hanging out with her husband and stepson, reading, writing, running, cooking or obsessing over her dog.
