About Kaylee When I was young wine was a part of our family dynamic, my especially enjoying choosing the wines for our large Italian gatherings and would often let me try them. As a teenager, and later, as a college student, while attempting to woo women, I tried to learn as much about wine as could, mostly to appear more cultured or mature on dates (there’s some not so subtle subtext here). After college I spent some time traveling and working, in places like France and California, and grew a greater appreciation for wine and decided to make it my career. I built a small, but relatively successful, local business for eight years, ended it when the economy changed, switched to private consulting and then switched to beer. Some of my best friends have come from relationships I’ve made during my time in the wine world so I am happy for my time spent in it.
