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 her level 3 WSET with flying colours 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 and has worked her way up to Junior Brand Manager, looking after Quartet, Domaine Anderson and Carpe Diem. In her spare time, Kate enjoys climbing, reading, cooking and swimming.
