Bacchus & Venus - a taste of wine country
About Us:    Kelly Barrett

After graduating from The Ohio State University in 2010 with a degree in Art History, I moved out to Sonoma, California to work a grape harvest in Santa Rosa for Russell Bevan of Bevan Cellars. Russell makes his wine at Vinify Winery Collective, a crazy house of 20+ winemakers who enjoy experimenting with esoteric grape varietals, new winemaking techniques and different ways to punish unassuming harvest interns. I also worked closely with the cellarmaster at Vinify, Matt Duffy, former manager of Bacchus & Venus. After harvest, I traded in my rubber galoshes for my trademark cowboy boots to pour boutique wines for the clientele of Bacchus & Venus.

Working at Bacchus and Venus has showed me the bigger picture of what was going on at Vinify- small production winemakers all across California making interesting wines that excite and deliver on so many levels. I've been exposed to wines that have evolved into new favorites, making me want to literally "write home about" them, send a postcard, tell my friends and scream from the mountain tops why I'm so in love!

Yes, I'm in love with wine-especially with my mistress, Petite Sirah. I call myself an equal opportunity wine enthusiast, however when it comes to Petite Sirah, I am as biased as they come. It's wonderful as 100% Petite Sirah but blend and boy you've caught my attention. It's a goddess' grape, full of flavor, bold attitude and lip-smacking gusto.
