Meg Nolan van Reesema


As an editor and writer for the past 15 years, Meg’s work has been published in various luxury publications (Robb Report, Travel + Leisure, Town & Country) as well as online. In 2008 Meg published her first book, Italian Hideaways with Rizzoli International Publications and was subsequently translated into Japanese and German. She then went on to do two more books for Rizzoli, creating a Hideaways series with titles on the Caribbean and England in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Between the books, Meg held editorial staff positions at magazines Travel + Leisure Golf, Town & Country and Vanity Fair, where she was the Assistant to the Editor in Chief. Fostering her love of Italy, Meg worked overseas for the International Herald Tribune in Milan, where she was a stringer reporter for the weekly insert; Italy Weekly.  In 2017, Meg launched her first magazine, GOODSPEED, an inflight magazine for Tradewind Aviation covering signature destinations like Nantucket, Stowe and St. Barths.

Trip Designer

As a travel writer and author, Meg has traversed the globe, visiting some of the most highly sought-after locations and properties. Her discerning nature coupled with years of on-the-ground travel experience is what guides her when advising clients on where to go and where to stay. Her in-depth familiarity with the top-level properties and clear sensibility towards what’s worthwhile is consistently touted by clients as one of the most valuable benefits of Meg’s bespoke travel advice and itineraries.

Wine Consultant

Meg is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Wine (a lifelong pursuit!) and has spent the last four years studying via the Wine Spirits Education Trust out of the UK. She has earned her Advanced Degree with the intention of sharing her knowledge and passion for viniculture. From formal lectures to private tastings (virtual too!) and cellar consultations, Meg is eager to impart what she’s learned and encourage better drinking for all.
