My Story

Hey Y’all 👋 I’m Kelly!

Nice to meet you, thank you for visiting and supporting my small business!

I am an American expat currently living in Berlin 🇩🇪 . I worked in the technology space for 10 years, and then decided to turn my passion for wine full time!  I love drinking wine 🍷, meeting new people and traveling the world one glass at a time 🌍🍷.

When the pandemic started, I was trapped at home surrounded by a sea of empty wine bottles with visits to wineries entirely out of reach, and missing social interactions with friends and family scattered all over the world.

I took this opportunity to start connecting people virtually through wine and started Visa de Vino, where I have built virtual events for wine lovers around the world to sip along at home directly with some of my favorite winemakers.

Once the world opened up again, I started hosting social tastings in Berlin, and in person private events. I focus on small businesses and wineries while bringing groups of people together over wine. 

My goal is to make wine fun and approachable, give people an interesting and delicious experience and help support small businesses and wineries through the process.

PS - I am a certified wino with WSET level 2, and WSET level 3 in progress.
