Karen Graham has been involved in the British Columbia wine industry in a variety of roles since 1998. She can never truly walk away from the grape – or the great people in the industry – so in 2011 she combined her wine and public policy experience to begin writing on interesting issues in the BC wine business. She launched WineDrops.ca in 2015 to continue offering independent commentary on regulatory, policy and business matters in the wine and liquor industry in the province. Karen holds a Master of Arts degree in International Relations/Political Science, and a Master of Public Policy degree. Her non-wine roles have included Senior Policy Analyst for the Business Council of BC, and Economic/Political Affairs Advisor to the United States Consulate (Vancouver).
