Hello and welcome! I’m Kathy, and you have found my blog ~ At The Tasting Room. I chose that name to represent more than just winery tasting rooms; it really means that I am “at the tasting room of life”! I’m enjoying everything that life has to offer, and I want to share it with you!
I was born and raised in the Bay Area and moved up to Sonoma County in 1990 where I raised my two children. I started wine tasting when my husband and I started road biking through Healdsburg, and it became a passion to learn as much as I could each time we would go out. Yes, I was the girl at the wine bar asking a million questions, and I still am! As a teacher by trade, I am a lifelong learner, and learning about wine is a lifelong endeavor, so that fits perfectly!
I also love fine dining, cooking, travel, books, movies, and adventures of every kind. I have a copy of the travel book 1,000 Place to See Before You Die, and I’m checking them off, one by one!
Something unique about me is that I am a twin and one of seven children, yes a big Catholic family! In my own family, I have two children, and now three grandchildren who are the light of my retired life! I’m also a US, Irish, and Canadian citizen.
Let me know something unique about you in the comments and subscribe to my Newsletter to get post notifications. I’m so glad you made it here, and I am also very active on Instagram #AtTheTastingRoom and #WineCountryBabes. Thanks for stopping by!
