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 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 Brand Manager, looking after Domaines Ott*, Domaines Schlumberger, Merry Edwards, Roederer Estate Quartet, Domaine Anderson and Carpe Diem. Kate passed her WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wine & Spirits in 2020. In her spare time, Kate enjoys climbing, reading, cooking and swimming.
