While studying for her degree in French and English at University College London, Kate spent a year in Bordeaux which is when she fell head over heels for wine! Determined to turn this passion into a career, she then passed level 2 WSET with distinction and started working for CIVA (Alsace Wines), maintaining and developing their social media. While working for CIVA, Kate completed a Level 4 Diploma in Wine, Gastronomy and Management at Le Cordon Bleu London to broaden her knowledge of wine and the wine industry. Kate joined the team in September 2015 as a Marketing Assistant to work with the Brand Managers on Events, Marketing, PR and Social Media. In her spare time, Kate enjoys reading, cooking and swimming.
