Kareasa’s interest in wine began her senior year at UC Santa Cruz, during which time she worked part-time in the tasting room for Bonny Doon Vineyard. Her experience at the winery inspired her to learn more about wine by traveling the world. Her passion for wine has taken her to wineries in France, Spain, Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, South Africa, and various other countries. She holds a Master’s Degree in English, and received a certificate in Wine Fundamentals from the International Sommelier’s Guild in 2004.
