Meet one of our Certified Sommeliers – Kathleen!
Kathleen loves to share her passion for wine with her friends, old and new! As a WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) accredited wine educator and experienced wine tasting professional she brings knowledge, experience, and a desire to learn more about wines, wine regions and food and wine pairing.
After a long and successful career as a Chief Marketing Officer for international law firms, Kathleen has, in early semi-retirement, jumped with both feet into the world of wine. As a tasting associate at Dashe Cellars, she enjoys sharing her wine knowledge and the experience of tasting new wines with winery guests.
Through her travels to the US wine regions and through the grape growing areas of Portugal, France, Croatia, Greece and Italy, she has discovered new and exciting wines and visited centuries old wineries that continue to produce world class wines. She brings this enthusiasm, knowledge and desire to keep learning about wine, to you and your wine event
