Hometown: Santa Rosa California

Favorite Jessup Wine: It is hard to say as she love them all, but if she had to pick it would be ‘Juel’ – It has so many layers of complex flavors and is a wine that can pair with almost any meal, or even just by itself!

About: Kimberly brings over 20 years of dedicated wine experience & passion to the Good Life Wine Collective family. She loves anything to do with being outdoors – biking and hiking, boating and camping with her husband. Time with family is also incredibly important to Kimberly! She adores being a mother of two beautiful daughters and now she gets to enjoy her grandchildren.
