Originally from the East Bay, Kelsey Schmidt graduated from CalPoly San Luis Obispo in 2012 with an Agribusiness degree. She has worked in wine in Paso Robles for over five years. Kelsey considers herself a local transplant; she could never imagine working or living anywhere else. Her experience includes Southern Wine & Spirits, Chamisal Vineyards, Concannon Vineyard, Le Vigne Winery, Bianchi Winery and Tasting Room, Broken Earth Winery, and Epoch Estate Wines where she currently works as an Entourage Allocations Assistant. In her spare time you can find her tasting at other local wineries, cideries, breweries, and distilleries and trying to learn as much as she can about wine and alcohol and everything that makes Paso so special.
