Winemaker, Artist, and Adventure Seeker
last summer… was born when I decided to pursue my dream of making great wine on California's Central Coast. I fell in love with this region largely because of the diversity and quality of wine growing and winemaking. Each wine is a piece of art. I felt inspired by the attention to farming, sustainability, and the desire of the community to capture the essence of vineyards and varietals. The approach and support I was looking for. So, in Spring 2013 I began my adventure.
My passion for travel stems from growing up in a military family. Ever since then I have taken every opportunity to explore this beautiful world and its cultures. The only thing so far I thought could tame my wanderlust was my passion for winemaking. But, I still found a way to move to Kauai and keep it going. I wanted to have a day job that allowed me to focus more on teaching meditation and enjoying time surfing and being outdoors. Being a winemaker and an assistant winemaker made making wine a 24/7 job. I enjoyed it for a while, but am happy to have my small intimate label and still be able to enjoy the other things that I do. I am pleased to say that I now manage a wine market here on Kauai and am on my sommelier certification track. I just love wine and will never get away from it! I am also teaching meditation regularly and surfing as much as possible. I feel that in order to represent last summer, I must live it. It's about living life fully and giving you presence to where you are. This is the approach I take to my life and to my wine. I hope you enjoy several glasses and that she sparks some desire in you to do what you love and puts a smile on your face.
