5/2 TAYLOR HART, SANTA BARBARA VINTNERS, CHEF TYLER STONE, THE CALIFORNIA WINEMASTERS, STEVE EVANS, THE MOVIE REPORT
After graduating from the University of Colorado with a B.S. in Business Marketing, Taylor spent a year working for a biodynamic vineyard in a village outside of Auckland, New Zealand. This was her first introduction to the wine world and she quickly fell in love with all it has to offer – the people, the places, the culture, the product. Upon returning to the United States she moved from her small hometown in Washington State to Buellton, where she started working for the Vintners’ Association as an Intern. Taylor was promoted to Marketing and Communications Coordinator in October and hopes to continue blending her passions for marketing and wine, while learning more about the industry, in the Santa Barbara region.
