“Wake up with a smile and go after life…live it, enjoy it, taste it, smell it, feel it.” Joe Knapp

Drink In Life Blog began in January of 2018, as a way to share stories and photos about founder Elaine Luxton’s Wine, Food and Travel discoveries and adventures. Elaine is a Professional Travel and Commercial Photographer and writes freelance about wine, spirits, food, and travel. Elaine resides in the stunning Snoqualmie Valley in Washington State and is always finding new ways to Drink In Nature while enjoying the mountains and forests surrounding her. No matter the medium, photographs, or words, Elaine’s mission is to be a storyteller.


Currently studying for the WSET Level 3 certification, Elaine has a passion for wine that is fueled by the very accessible and award-winning Pacific Northwest wines, as well as the vast selection of national and international wines that find their way into her glass. Elaine embraces the experiences and knowledge gained from her global travel to wine regions, and other spectacular destinations specifically selected to share with her readers. Drink In Life Blog is strongly committed to sharing new discoveries whether they be wine, travel or food related in a way that is both unique and informative.


When wine is the subject, Elaine is always expanding her horizons for a better understanding of global vineyards, terrior, winemaking techniques, and unique varietals to gain a better perspective of the ever-changing wine industry. Always on a quest to discover the perfect food and beverage pairing, Elaine seeks out all avenues which blend tasting dishes with just the right drink, both locally and internationally sourced. Elaine considers travel, whether local or abroad, always the best way to find stories to share. Whether in a vineyard, winery, national park, or visiting a monument, every part of the world is a story waiting to be told. Elaine regularly interviews viticulturists, winemakers, distillers, chefs, artisans, and small business owners to share with readers their passions and what they are doing to share those passions with other. By using storytelling with both photographs and words Elaine shows a deeper side of the world of wine, spirits, food and travel.
