Born and raised in Louisiana, Kimberly made the decision to pack up and move West after a stint working in the wine distribution world. Landing at Robert Sinskey vineyards in Napa Valley, Pinot Noir and an appreciation for the land soon became her focus. Working an extensive harvest in Tasmania brought her further into the vineyard. She then spent four years in the cellar of Domaine Serene exploring the craft of winemaking. Kim joined Lingua Franca as Assistant Winemaker in early 2017 to contribute her skills to our winemaking team.
