After graduating from the University at Buffalo with a Ph.D. in philosophy and education, Linda Bramble taught at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, then at Concordia University in Montreal. When she returned to Niagara, she became the Program Director for the Niagara Institute, a center for the study of leadership. While there, she, along with three others, started What’s Up Niagara magazine where she contributed articles on wine, lifestyle and crime. In the mid 1990s, Linda was also instrumental in launching the Cool Climate Oenology and Viticulture Institute (CCOVI) at Brock University. Her contributions to the wine community have won her awards from the Niagara Grape and Wine Festival as Business Person of the Year (2001), the Woman in Gastronomy of the Year (2002), and she has been inducted as a professional associate into Brock University's Cool Climate and Oenology Institute (CCOVI) (2007), a fellow in the Ontario Hostelry Institute (2006) and the Ducati dei Fruili (2004).

Bramble had the honour of receiving the Wine Educator of the Year Award from the Ontario Hostelry Institute as well as the Wine Journalism Award selected by the Wine Writers of Canada and sponsored by Vines Magazine in 2010. With the release of Niagara’s Wine Visionaries: Profiles of the Pioneering Winemakers in 2009, Linda was able to unite both her passion for wine and her passion for business leadership. Today she continues to be very busy writing, teaching and business coaching. She is currently writing about Confederate agents in the Niagara Peninsula during the American civil war and is pursuing options to take her work to audiences worldwide.
