Taste & Learn with Kara

For those who don’t know me, I’ve had quite the journey with wine. My origin story began when I took off for Napa after graduating from the University of Florida. My first job was at the wine bar of the iconic Inglenook Estate. After a summer in Napa Valley, I was overwhelmingly hooked. I pursued my Sommelier certification and upon passing the world of wine opened up even further for me.  
After two years in the wine country, I drove back across the country to take on New York City.  I soaked up all of the experiences the city had to offer.  I worked as a wine director, and educator, and continued to immerse myself in my studies.  After a few years in the city, I obtained my Diploma through WSET and finished the manuscript for my first book.
In 2022, my manuscript was published and my book, If Wine Could Talk, hit the shelves.  The book blends my personal narrative of living a nontraditional life of wine with wine education. Most recently,  I was accepted into the Master of Wine program and I intend to achieve the title of Master of Wine in three years.  All that being said, I have no intention of slowing down.   My passion for wine and people grow every day.  I can’t wait to meet and create incredible wine moments at Vintners for you all.
