Carolyn Holt, Owner of Vin Wine and Events
My love of wine dates back decades; from a child raised by wine loving parents to an adult fond of these devine grapes. It’s really been in the past 4 years that I have wanted to take a career jump, feet first (actually heart first), into this world of wine. Vin Wine and Events has been an idea floating around in my head for the last year and a half but as a school counselor there was never enough time to sit and plan. So, I took a leave of absence from school and decided to make this leap. With the help of my family and friends I’m moving myself away from educating children and into educating you about wine. I want to bring my love of education, wine and event planning to your home.
Within the last few years, I have taken courses and classes, many through the Northwest Wine Academy, on:
- food and wine pairings
- growers champagne
- wine sensory
- comparing wines from different regions
- wine history and appreciation
I have also been able to meet with local wine makers and people within the wine business; as well as gaining hands on experience working at The Grape Choice in Kirkland, WA (a small local wine shop/bar) and at EFESTE Winery in Woodinville, WA.
I want to share all my passion, energy and love of wine with you. Vin Wine and Events is unpretentious and wants to share quality, small, boutique wines to the world. So, let’s have a party together!
