Katie began her wine journey in 2011 after graduating from Washington State University with a degree in Viticulture and Enology (Go Cougs!). Following college, Katie steered away from wine production, but kept her feet firmly in the industry. She spent time with a national wine retailer, then worked with Seattle area distributors in sales and portfolio management roles.

Currently, Katie serves as our Regional Sales Manager, and oversees distribution sales across the Northwest.

In her free time, Katie enjoys off-roading in the Blue Mountains with her husband and dogs, as well as completing small renovations of her home here in Walla Walla. Katie’s goal is to create the perfect oasis in her backyard for enjoying a good glass of wine with friends and family.
