About The Savvy Stews
Savvy Stews began in 2010 as an internet brand created by Gailen David and Bobby Laurie to merge their individual travel focused websites into one go-to source. After four short months, SavvyStews.com became the largest independent travel network on the internet by both traffic and content. The network has since grown by adding additional bloggers and websites adding focus to topics such as food and drink (restaurants, and home cooking) and wine (various vineyards and locations).
