About the educator, Kristin Watts

Born and raised in Minneapolis, Kristin has always held storytelling close to her as one of life’s greatest gifts and believes that the stories of winemaking families and how they work their craft is invaluable.

Although wine has always been quietly in the background of her life (her grand-mère grew up in Reims, FR so wine was always at the table) it was during a college study abroad trip in Montpellier when she truly unearthed the magic of wine. She carried this with her in NYC where she worked in a wine bar, wine shop and a wine media company and eventually to Shanghai, China where she lent her skills for an importer of California wine.

While she never thought she would return to Minneapolis, it was here at home where she chanced upon a small wine import company and over the last 6 years has dedicated herself to developing a portfolio of wines from Europe that showcase a sense of place, families who are intrinsically aligned with their land and their history and that offer us more than just a glass of wine (although the wine is always good!)

Kristin’s passion for the stories behind the label runs deep and she is thrilled to share these stories with you!
