The path to being intoxicated with wine (I do not mean with alcohol) comes in many fashions. Virtually everyone that is consumed with wine has a story to tell. Some left the family wine business to become lawyers or even doctors but the allure brought them back to their roots (full of puns today).
There are not many careers that would align themselves for a switch to wine as does Katarinas first love of history; maybe food, hospitality and a few others would be synergistic but history would be my vote for natural progression to wine. Wine is history. Wine is about the story. All of history has wine.
Katarina was taken by wine during her studies and quickly became an academic in the world of wine. Settling in Florence, 100's of kilometers from her native Sweden, Katarina has become an expert in the regions and ways of Italian wine. With over 2000 wine varietals, she has much to learn but that is what wine is about....the chase of the knowledge.
Have a listen to Katarina's chase.
