A Little About Christie

International Sommelier Christie Kiley has over a decade of combined experience in both restaurants and wineries.  She started out in kitchens where she spent some six years working under talented chefs...

After a few years in restaurants, her passion for food began overflowing into the wine industry and while laboring during wine harvests in Napa, she learned the nature of the product from soil to bottling.  Experience working the back- and front-of-the-house in restaurants, wineries in sales, and as a food and wine educator, Christie has vast knowledge of the two industries.

After spending four years in Buenos Aires, where she received her Fourth Level International Sommelier Certificate from the Escuela de Argentina Sommeliers (EAS) following two years study, she has decided to travel in order to fine-tune her knowledge and delve into the gastronomy and cultures around the globe.  In order to share her experiences with others, Christie works as a freelance writer to share her cultural experiences.
