Hi, I’m Lisa Bell. I began my career in the wine business 18 years ago, in 1997, at a large company located in Northern Virginia. It was a great beginning to the rest of my life! I joined forces with a local Importer in 2004, helped build that business for 10 years, and then began LK wine tours and sales in 2015.

My experiences locally and around the world are quite extensive with numerous trips to Europe (France, Spain, Italy, Germany, and Austria) South Africa, South America (Argentina and Chile), Australia & New Zealand, and the west coast to include California, Washington, Oregon and of course Virginia! Over the years I have encountered the tastes of the regions through my travels and have gained the appreciation of the traditional cuisine and wines, as well as creating long lasting friendships with over 100 producers, owners and wine makers.  These connections developed into the creation of LK Wine Tours and Sales!

To truly appreciate this lifestyle I now know one needs to travel under the guidance of a seasoned professional. My travels also created long lasting friendships with over 100 producers. These connections developed into the creation of LK Wine Tours!

"There is absolutely no substitute for the best. Good food cannot be made of inferior ingredients masked with high flavor. It is true thrift to use the best ingredients available and to waste nothing." - James Beard
