Kaitlin is a Yankee with a degree in Studio Art. It took her until she was 25 to realize wine was awesome. During an eight year stint in South Carolina, she ran the wine programs for a small group of restaurants and earned her CSW (Certified Specialist of Wine) certification. In November of 2014, she uprooted to Oregon wine country. She blogs at www.thewinesnob.net, enjoys the occasional freelance gig, works for a winery, and tastes as much wine as humanly possible.
