We’ve received great response to our launch of the new Scarpa Cellar Dive and we are THRILLED to share the first entry by Katrina Rene, a leading U.S. wine writer and blogger from Houston, Texas.
According to her about page, the mission of her blog is “to present wine and travel experiences in such a way as to make them accessible to everyone. But not to worry, you won’t see me going on and on with wordy tasting notes. I’m all about the experience. I want people to be comfortable with wine and travel and not to be intimidated because everyone doesn’t look like you, or everyone seems to be so much more well-traveled and educated. I want wine to be accessible to all that want to learn about it and experience it. We all have to start somewhere.”
And on a personal note, she’s one of the nicest people working in wine media today. Our U.S. wine blogger Jeremy also lives in a Houston and in the pre-COVID-19 world, they often tasted together, including a wonderful tasting of Scarpa with winery director Riikka Sukula at Vinology, one of Houston’s top wine shops.
“Kat is one of those people who’s always ready to lend a hand,” says Jeremy. “She’s always helping and encouraging people who have recently joined the wine media community here. She’s one of the best things about the Houston wine scene, a great taster and a wonderful writer who’s in this game for all the right reasons.”
Heartfelt thanks to Kat for making the first contribution to our new virtual tasting series. We can’t think of a better person to get us started!
And thanks to everyone who’s reached out and offered to make a video: Every click counts, every like matters! Stay safe!
