Mutineer Magazine Celebrates Inspired Voices of the Beverage Revolution: Laura Levesque Page

Miscellaneous

Mutineer Magazine announces the addition of a new recurring column called “Inspired Beverage Voices,” created to celebrate regional innovators in the world of fine beverage culture. Each issue will now explore a different area, highlighting individuals working with local libations in inspired, new ways. With the support of No.3 Gin, the inaugural feature on Napa Valley will appear in the November 2011 edition and will introduce the nation to the new and innovative voices of TouteSuite Social Club, with Susan Quinn and Didier Loustau, Christophe Smith of Harvest Live, and Laura Levesque Page of The Healthy Junkie.

“It’s been said that a culture is defined by its articulate voices, so we couldn’t be more excited to highlight these new and inspired voices in beverage culture, beginning with Napa Valley,” says Mutineer Editor in Chief and Publisher Alan Kropf.

Today we celebrate the third and last of our Inspired Beverage Voices.

Laura Levesque Page R.H.N., a.k.a. The Healthy Junkie, beat three cancer diagnoses in her early ‘20s by turning away from drastic surgical methods and embracing the natural healing power of a healthy diet and lifestyle. “For me, health is simple: eat more vegetables,” she says. Her recipe for good health includes lots of beverages inspired by leafy greens and fresh juices, which she shares on her website and via Twitter. She also uses her wellness-centered blog, workshops and personal life coaching to inspire others to make better lifestyle choices.

Christophe Smith is the founder of Harvest Live, an online portal that allows any person with a mobile device to experience a vineyard harvest and grape crush as it happens, without leaving the comfort of home. Inspired by all the “really cool stuff in Napa Valley that the consumer never gets a chance to see,” Smith’s creation uses an online streaming format that lets participants ask questions via moderated chat room or Twitter, and gives people all over the world a glimpse behind the scenes of a Napa Valley grape harvest. Archive footage is also available year-round on their website.
