Carrie Kalscheuer

CARRIE KALSCHEUER: Senior Manager of Sales & Education
Carrie began her career in the restaurant industry and decided to make wine her focus after an influential bottle of Amarone while living in Italy. She abandoned a promising future in Philosophy and today is a Certified Sommelier and Certified Specialist of Wine. Beckoned by the Pacific Northwest and its wines, she boldly moved to Oregon having never visited, and fell in love with the outdoors where she hikes, camps and even ran from Hood to Coast with the A to Z Barreling Down team.

KAREN IRIZARRY KISSANE: Tasting Room & Hospitality Manager
Born and raised in the gardens of the Garden State, Karen earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech--so naturally she landed in the wine industry. Sometimes you have to go left to get right, right? Her appreciation for wine led her to become a Certified Sommelier and she gained practical knowledge working in California, Australia, and New Zealand. She got her hands dirty and bought Blundstones working vintages in Australia, Germany, New Zealand, and France. Her love of cool climate varieties, artisanal wet weather gear, and foot-long slugs brought her to the Willamette Valley where she shares her knowledge and love of wine with the many tasters who visit REX HILL.
