Avery Javier
"I lived in the Finger Lakes in Geneva when I moved to New York from Tampa, Florida during high school. After completing high school and working in the hospitality industry, I wanted to pursue a career that was more involved in science. As I was looking into potential fields, I realized the thriving wine industry blooming in the Finger Lakes was close to home and involved a degree of science as well as art. Before I decided to dive into the wine industry I wanted to self learn as much as I could about the alcoholic beverage industry. After researching for many months, I saw the passion people developed for the products they create, whether it was beer, cider, spirit, or wine. All of this peaked my interest and I enrolled myself in FLCC's Viticulture and Wine program in 2016. Completing the program in 2018, I have developed a lifelong love for wine and cider production as well as the people behind the entire industry. I wish to work around the world in different winemaking regions in the future to learn as much as possible and reach the ultimate goal of becoming a Master of Wine."
