Cori Solomon, an award-winning freelance writer/photographer, based in Los Angeles, California, focuses on travel, art, food, wine, and pets. She often highlights the story behind the restaurant, chef, winery, winemaker, or artist.

Her background in real estate and art both play a role in her writing, whether it is the architectural splendor of a building, a historical-artistic rendering, or the artistry of a winemaker or chef.

Since Cori often travels with her dogs, Salukis, she has a keen eye for pet-friendly stories.

Her blog, The Written Palette, features eclectic articles about her experiences traveling, dining, discovering new wines, wineries, and wine regions as well as topics including art and pets.

Wine is central to Cori, who founded the 50-member LA Wine Writers. Cori has earned her WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits, received the NASA American Wine Specialist Certification, and a NASA Spanish Wine Specialist Certification.

Cori also contributes to Big Blend Magazine, which focuses on Lifestyle and travel, FWT Magazine, spotlighting food, wine, and Travel, Rovology, sharing the best a city has to offer, TravelWorld International, highlighting travel, and Wander with Wonder, where many of my European articles are featured.

Cori also knows how to engage radio audiences and has been featured on Big Blend Magazine, which also has a radio show and the SoCal Restaurant Show.

In 2019 Cori became the Membership Chair of IFWTWA and this year, joined the IFWTWA Board as a Director. In addition, Cori co-hosts IFWTWA webinars, which showcases wine regions, travel destinations, professional development, and other topics.
