Kristin | I Love Wine

Hi, I’m Kristin. I was born to be a wine lover. It runs in the family! My father grew up on a vineyard in Argentina where he developed an interest in wine at an early age. Long before I was old enough to drink I began to to associate wine with family, heritage, good food, and celebration. Thanks to my dad.

The Wine Lover, Great Wine & Good Friends

Although my dad’s family moved to California when he was a teenager, he took his memories and passion with him. He’s been a wine hobbyist for his entire adult life. Sharing his enthusiasm with friends and family.

Some of my fondest childhood memories include helping my dad build homemade wine racks to house his growing collection. I would aimlessly wander the aisles at the wine store with my brother (and eating all the cheese samples). Our parents shopped for the perfect bottle of wine. During meals, I would sip my parent’s wine trying hard not to make a face (and usually failing).

As I got older, my father’s hobby became mine as well. While studying abroad in Florence, I took an Italian wine class. I volunteered at a nearby vineyard during their harvest, learning more about the wine industry and its intersection with Italian culture. When my family visited me, I delighted in sharing my new favorite Chianti Classico and Vernaccia di San Gimignano with them.

From that trip on, I knew I would always share that connection with my dad. Years later, we still regularly compare notes on books about wine, visit local vineyards, and talk about each new bottle we add to our cellars. My father has passed his passion and knowledge on to me, and I hope I can share that gift with others!
