Wholesomm was created by Sydney Isaacs, a 29-year-old American currently living between Italy and France, to shed light on the wine pairing possibilities for vegetarians. Frustrated with wine labels exclusively recommending “beef, lamb, pork, veal…” as pairings, she wanted to show that all wines – even full-bodied reds – have their perfect meatless pairings too. As more people shift to an environmentally-friendly diet (i.e. more plants and less meat), Sydney passionately believes that those same wine traditions from our meat-centric past can carry over to our plant-forward future. She holds a WSET Level 2 certification in wine, along with a degree in environmental engineering and an MBA.

Launched in August 2017 as a community for vegetarians, vegans, or otherwise primarily plant-based foodies who enjoy real food and drink good wine, Wholesomm strives to inspire those who want to eat well and eat decadently – without the fear of gluten, sugar, oil, carbs, or any other ingredients that “health gurus” love to demonize.

Taking inspiration from her travels and life in Italy and France, Sydney’s recipes are inspired by the Mediterranean with an emphasis on seasonal and local ingredients. On Wholesomm, you’ll find recipes, wine pairings, how-to guides, hosting tips, restaurant reviews, travel guides, and recommendations for all things food & wine. Cheers!
