Karen started her career as a corporate lawyer, working for a top firm in New York, and moved on to the executive teams of two technology start-ups in London, England. After years of long hours and little self-satisfaction, she decided to switch gears and pursue what truly fulfilled her.

Group Made Wine

A question was asked in class about different wine makers coming together to make wine and I mentioned Opus One. Shortly after that day I arrived home to find this wine waiting to be tasted! The wine had an approachable deep dark fruit palette and a nose that matched, oak was evident but not nominant and it paired well with a pasta a meat sauce dish I made.
