Will Farley – Director of Content
Will Farley is the Director of Content for Community Wine and Spirits and approaches his work with a (hopefully) infectious desire to learn and share the most interesting things going on in the world of wine and spirits and beyond. In his time as a journalist, he’s written about everything from travel, whiskey, and wine to motorcycles and Mongolian music. Working in the wine industry for the past six years, Will has said that he’s finally found a subject with no bottom; there’s always more to learn. He always follows this by saying, “but it’s also just a delicious drink to have with your friends, and that’s the best part.” He is currently studying for his WSET Diploma at the International Wine Center.
