Caitlin started pouring wine for tourists and locals alike at Benziger Family Winery in 2011. The process of making wine was most intriguing to her and so she set on a path of doing harvests in New Zealand, California and France. While living abroad she was able to visit wine regions in Italy, Australia, England, Turkey and Switzerland. What always fascinated Caitlin was the different techniques, processes and regulations she learned about in each country. After returning to California, she completed the MBA in Wine Business program at Sonoma State. During this time she had transitioned into an administrative cellar role and crossed paths with Ann Reynolds. Caitlin's frustration with the vagaries of wine compliance and determination to figure them out were fostered by the guidance of Ann Reynolds, a leader in wine compliance! From there they set out to create a space for wine industry professionals to learn about wine compliance and connect with other professionals in the space.
