In 2012, Deborah discontinued her own direct importing, but assists others with their portfolios and devotes an increasingly greater proportion of time to consulting, seminars and education. Working with distributors and other importers allows her to remain current on the industry and its evolving nature. A second wine business book - The Exporter's Handbook to the U.S. Wine Market is due for release towards the end of 2015.
Deborah lives in Southern California with her husband and a rescued Corgi.
