Expertise: Travel, food, spirits, wine, beer

Asonta Benetti is a freelance writer based in Phoenix, Arizona. She specializes in travel, food, and beverage, including spirits, wine, and beer. Asonta covers luxury experiences, hole-in-the-wall finds, and everything in between. She loves being able to learn, whether that's from talking to people, visiting places, or experiencing new things.

When she's not writing, Asonta loves reading, visiting bodies of water (oceans, in particular), and viewing the beautiful Arizona sunsets. Cooking and baking have been lifelong passions of hers, both in the kitchen and on the television, and the list of restaurants she wants to try is impossibly long. Asonta is also a self-professed fan of Jeopardy! and local trivia nights.

Life is too short for bad coffee and too beautiful for an empty passport.
